Hosting a reading is a great way to give back to the community in a tangible and interactive way.

She always shows the positivism and the optimistic aspect of words in unique patterns. The soft-hearted Rahat Zahid is always ready to help others not only for friends but for all. Returning to the life of happiness is just like the fragrance has returned.

We all will pray for her long life, so that we can enjoy her poetry. Further said, Rahat has unique sense to use words in poetry. Imtiaz Ali Gohar a well known poet of Qalam Qabila said the same compliment to her, he said the ray of light can be felt while reading her poetry. He said the ray of hope starts to become strong once you go through the bitter experience of life.
