Asslam U Alaikkum. Khush Aamdeed. Namaste. Hello. Sasriyakal. Hola. Bonjour.
You all are already aware about The Desi Writer and why I chose to become one. Being a Desi Writer, I have had a lot of success, Kora Kaaghaz was just one of those accolades. However, with crunch times, it became difficult to manage two blogs at the same time. So I decided to merge the two and from one big website – The Desi Writer.
I am just merging the two to form one. This does not take away the essence of Kora Kaaghaz and why it began. The mission is still quite on.
Kora Kaaghaz is about the life of normal people. All those people who never got the chance to express themselves because of the language barrier – Kora Kaaghaz is for you. It is written, directed, produced and edited by people. I will try my best to write as much as I can in my mother tongue, Urdu.
Why Urdu? Why Roman-Urdu? Because being a desi writer, it is only fitting for me to write in the language I prefer to be closest to me.
I might lend it to you for a while to imprint your own life on it, but You will not be able to own. Sorry.
On Kora Kaaghaz, anything can be written and in whatever fashion possible.
Roman Urdu, Urdu, English, Hindi…whatever.
Additionally, I am not forcing you to read Kora Kaaghaz, however, if you do decide to read it, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
I am sure we all will get to learn a lot from this medium. After all, this is the main purpose of this life and this world – Teaching and learning together to prosper in life. All you need is a little bit of hard work and a lot of determination.
Please be aware that most of the stories posted under Kora Kaaghaz are going to be real life experiences.
