Kuch Khaas brings you the best of Pakistan's Art, Culture and Literature in its effort to sensitize the community to our rich cultural heritage.

Sudh Budh, a new feature at Kuch Khaas, intends to showcase contemporary arts and literature in Pakistan.

Join us Wednesday for a live conversation with novelist and translator Musharraf Ali Farooqi who will read a few excerpts in Urdu from Alif Laila. Farooqi will also engage in discussion about his new novel 'Between Clay and Dust'.
