Is the Urdu language declining?
Even though, Pakistanis are gifted with a large number of people who possess the abilities to mesmerize with their words and educate through intelligent satire and irony, the Pakistani writers have started to publish more in the English language than in Urdu.
Is it because of the declining interest in the sophisticated beauty of the language or the fault of our education system?
