Hyderabad: If self confidence is generated in the student, he can pass through the toughest stages. There seems to be more inferiority complex among the Urdu speaking population. If there is self confidence, the avenues of progress will be paved. These thoughts were expressed by Mr. Amer Ali Khan, News Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily while distributing prizes to the participants of “Urdu Expo” on the last day of this exhibition. He applauded the presentation of the student and said the way the students are presenting Urdu is exemplary. The apprehensions about the future of Urdu language are being wiped out by these tiny and talented students. In the fast developing world, Urdu has many opportunities of progress in every field of life. The status of Urdu in this country is similar to that of the Muslims but for its development organized attempts should be made.
In Urdu Expo, 56 students of Central Public High School, Khilwath participated and organized the exhibition in collaboration with Siasat Urdu Daily for four days. Ms. Avadesh Rani, Retired Guide Lecturer of Salarjung Museum participated in the function as a Chief Guest.
