Love for Language
Zia sahib’s name is synonymous with Urdu classic reading as his love for the language is beyond words. His readings in English are also very impressive as he knows his Shakespeare like the back of his hand. I started looking up to him as my idol due to his fondness for N.M. Rashid and Ashfaque Husain’s poetry and the letters of Mirza Ghalib which he often reads to make others laugh. He knows when to grasp the audience’s attention and when to make them laugh and this quality makes him shine. Hailed as an orator of great talent, Zia sahib is all inspiration.
