Family of the Heart - DIALOGUE & DISCUSSIONS 

Danielle Hussain

Family of the Heart,

You are true treasures. I want to thank you all for welcoming me as openly and warmly as you did. I had such a great time reciting my poetry, listening to your poetry, meeting a whole world of inspirational poets and of course, eating cake. I’m inclined to learn Urdu now and have already started my bollywood marathon! I’ll see you all soon.


Dear Danielle, It was so wonderful to have you as a poetess. I learnt to be sentimental in public. People called me out of concern and I reassured them they were tears of joy not sadness. Let us know when you can come back. Please ask your dad to send us the video for our website...affectionately, sohail

Dr. Faisal Saeed:

My heartiest congratulations to you, Dr Khalid, Najib Kazmi and the rest of the Family of the Heart Team for organizing such a huge event celebrating the 10th birthday of FOTH.

First of all, organizing so many events for 10 years spanning over a wide array of topics is an accomplishment in itself.. then engaging
people from all different schools of thought into a civil debate every time is amazing in its own right... Yesterday's event, attended by all
the who-is-who in GTA Urdu literary scene was a clear evidence of the history it represented.

Congratulations once again,

My dear Pervaiz Salahuddin Sahib: Aadab.

I send my best wishes for the 10 Birthday celebration and Mushaira of FOTH. I am sure the occasion would be a grand success. I am in Washington D.C. and due to prior academic preoccupation here I will not be able to attend it. I send my best wishes.

Recently five books of my English poetry were published. These have got very good reviews in literary journals of America and England. The latest review published today i.e. 7th of March 2012 is in THE GUARDIAN, LONDON. England. I am attaching a link and a photocopy.

Thanks and with best wishes,

Satyapal Anand
