Our first programme, Rooh-e-Majrooh, held on 12th November 2011 at India Islamic Cultural Centre New Delhi, was dedicated to Majrooh Sultanpuri saheb,...the great literary shaayar who composed more than 4,000 ghazals and songs over a span of 55 years. This programme, presented in an innovative format, had 25 of his best film songs rendered soulfully by highly talented artistes. In addition, there were recitals of some of his non-filmi shayari and conversation about his life.
The programme received an overwhelming applause.
