*Reading excerpts from Urdu novels, literature. For educational purpose, reading Urdu prose for better pronunciation and aiming at drawing readers' attention towards books by reading a few lines.
*My aim is that if I read one page from a 500 page novel i.e. just 0.2% of the book, and it rouses interest of person-listener and he or she is drawn towards buying reading the book, it would be a service for language and literature. If you like Urdu Literature Radio, do share the link with friends.and relatives who might be interested. Shukria.
