As a famous Farsi saying goes, "Do not forget the thinkers of the past." Yaad-e-Raftaygaan is a series of Urdu recitals celebrating the works of the poets from the past. People from the local community recite poems written by famous poets from the 15th to 20th centuries. Most of these recitals have taken place in the San Francisco Bay Area. Recently also from IIT Gandhinagar campus.
