He talks like magic, he wraps your attention like spinning a web, leaving you no choice but to listen to what he has to say. Asif Khan Dehlvi, the celebrated storyteller of Delhi and the founder of Delhi Karvaan, comes to Allahabad. On the 2nd of December, 2017, Arz Hai, a literary group with a composition of experiences building up their journey, had organized a storytelling session, “An Enchanting Evening”, with Mr. Dehlvi as the guest and storyteller.

This charmer, gripped the attention of the audience with his “Kissa-Goi”, just as he began, and soon had them all wanting to listen to just a little more of his kissas and kahanhiyans.

Not only his, but Ahmad Khan’s voice also hypnotically enthralled the attention of the listeners, spreading the aroma of music to every corner of their hearts.
The event was wrapped with some tea and a lot of pictures!

I am a teacher of Psychology by day and a writer by night. I was born in Allahabad, and have lived here ever since. This city has nurtured me, groomed me, loved me and infuriated me at times as well. I owe much to her. I am a passionate writer, poet and learner of a few other modes of expression like photography and would like, some day, to be known by these. I want to live it all.
