Actor Mustafa Qureshi said that writing a book at such a young age and even in such a way that the reader falls under its spell is very amazing. I congratulate the author for writing the best book.

Sahir Lodhi said that when I read one page, I was compelled to read the whole book.

Shehzad Qureshi said that not everyone gets the honor of poetry. It is not so easy to memorize and recite poetry. I congratulate her on this book. We have to come forward for Urdu literature. We cannot pay the debt of what we write in our language.
