Arts Council of Pakistan Karachi on Tuesday launched Samreen Nadeem’s poetry collection “Khushbo Khayal” at Hasina Moin Hall.

The event was presided over by Prof. Sehar Ansari, Samreen Nadeem, Furqan Siddiqui, Amjad Shah, Nisa Ahmed, Asma, and Alina Irfan.

Expressing their views, Dr Auj Kamal said that no one can stop a person who has the power of creativity, imagination, and eloquence from speaking, whether it is a man or a woman despite the prohibition. Thoughts are very important, of course, but the idea should be strong. I congratulate you on the gift of this book. I don’t doubt that the love of Samreen’s words is very deep, even his soul feels submerged in the sea of devotion.

He said that he has the skill of looking across the wall, closing words, techniques, metaphors, and beautiful language is fragrance, the publication of the idea is commendable. Some people prefer the pen instead of buying the luxuries of the exhibition life.

Sohail Ahmed said that a woman poet feels that in this book she has described “Khushbo Khayal” is an excellent book. The purpose of poetry may not be criticism or advice but it captures the soul.

Shah said that in today’s digital age, getting a book in our hands is no less than a miracle, and if that book is poetry then what the matter is, you are the best. Congratulations on writing the book, he said she is worthy of admiration.

Samreen Nadeem said, “I have been fascinated with poetry since my childhood. In children’s magazines, newspapers and magazines I would be very happy if it was published. I thank all of you who guided me every step of the way. I assure you that there will be more such works in the future.
