Poetry is a unique medium through which one conveys their emotions and thought. It can trigger anybody's heart and soothe your heart. Indian poet Javed Akhtar did exactly that when he recited bits from his grandfather Muztar Khairabadi’s poetry titled Khirman, which he compiled and released in 2015.

A video of the same was shared by the Twitter handle of Rekhta, which is a website for popular for Urdu poetry. The 1.45-minute clip is from the release event of the five-volume Khirman. The video starts with Akhtar taking the podium and stating that the poem he was going to read was probably the longest ever written in literature. He then goes on to read a couplet from ‘Use kyun humne diya dil‘.
