Mushaira CD Releasing Ceremony

Written by Faheem Jawaid

“I can’t possibly refrain myself from addressing the issues that speak about NRIs, or in relation to subject that happens to be in the interest of NRIs. These platforms, occasions, and events provide me with rationale motives and grounds to do so.” Mohammed Quaiser, the President of “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani”, pronounced emphatically.

Mohammed Quaiser was delivering his presidential speech on the “CD Releasing Ceremony” of “Grand All Saudi Mushaira” that was held on 27th April, 2006. The ceremony was arranged at Khayyam Restaurant, and was convened by Imtiaz Ahsan, Secretary “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani”.

I. P. Lakra, Second Secretary (Cultural and Information), Embassy of India, Riyadh, was the Chief Guest. Ratan Ghosh, Manager, Central Saudi Arabia, Air India and Mir Ahmed Ali, the renowned literary scholar, were the Guests of Honor.

Mohammed Quaiser, invited all existing Indian societies and forums of Saudi Arabia, to come out of their oblivion and limited activities and join hands with “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani”, which believes in fieldwork and in getting things done, irrespective of caste, creed, language and region. He said, “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani” realized that on “Republic Day” and “Independence Day”, Embassy arranges “Grand Mushairas” by inviting eminent poets from India, whereas distinguished and prominent poets among the Indian community, who on work-permit-visas, are available in Saudi Arabia and need acknowledgment to prove their credibility. “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani” represented the argument to the Embassy, and H.E. M.O.H Farooq, the Ambassador of India to Saudi Arabia, benignly realized and accepted the claim, ON THE SPOT, and ON THE STAGE, during “Grand All Saudi Mushaira” held on 27th April, 2006. And today’s event is in line with the CD releasing of 27th April’s video recording”.

Mohammed Quaiser thanked K.N. Wasif, for being the prime advocate of this idea and for his inspiration. Mahmood Shahid, a unique storywriter, an inimitable poet, and a distinctive critic of Urdu literature, came to Riyadh from Dammam, particularly to grace the occasion.

I.P. Lakra, Second Secretary (Cultural and Information), in his speech advised the Indian Community to approach him in person at any point of time. He promised that he would be all ears, and would listen to concerns and grievances of everybody and would try his utmost and best to resolve their problems.

Ratan Ghosh, Manager Central Saudi Arabia, Air India, affirmed that he was quite aware of the increasing demand and requirement of direct flight from Riyadh to Hyderabad and vice-versa. He assured the Indian Community in general and the “Hyderabadis” in particular, that the direct flights from Riyadh to various destinations, including Hyderabad, would be in force as soon as Air India receives the consignment of aircrafts, (an order to purchase 60 aircrafts, is already in place) which would be done periodically and in installments. Moreover, he promised that he would do his best to forward and elevate the demand of “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani” along with his proposal to the authorities concerned.

Mir Ahmed Ali, a distinguished literary scholar, in his speech said, “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani” is truly a symbol of solidarity and a forum of NRI’s welfare”. He added, “Tanzeem does work on finding precious stones, providing opportunities to cut, polish, and thus convert them into gems. K.N. Wasif a seasoned photographer, journalist and columnist came out as an exceptional and distinctive convener. Faheem Jawaid, a banker, and Zafar Mahmood Zafar, a medical administrator: whose poetry is published regularly in a variety of literary magazines, journals, weeklies and dailies of India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and UAE were exposed to those who were unaware and uninformed. “Tanzeem Hum Hindustani” pioneered the latent talent of these three to the general audience of Urdu speaking community in Riyadh”.

The colorful ceremony was postponed, to put the exact wordings of Imtiaz Ahsan, the convener of the ceremony, until the next event.
