The Gurmani Centre for Languages and Literature was pleased to welcome renowned Pakistani poet, writer, and scholar Iftikhar Hussain Arif to speak about his creative impetuses. Recognized as one of the most eminent contemporary Urdu poets, Arif's artistic impetus can be traced to a variety of sources, including his personal experiences, cultural stimuli, and his inimitable imaginative acuity. One of the key influences on Arif's poetry has been his multifaceted acquaintance with and appreciation of Urdu literature, particularly the works of prominent literary giants who preceded him.
