New Delhi: An entire Quran in a pen sized recorder and works by Ghalib, Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad and Rabindranath Tagore are attracting eye-balls at an exhibition organised as part of Urdu Heritage Festival here. 
The four-day festival, organised by Delhi Government's Culture and Languages Department, to commemorate the 150th death anniversary of Bahadur Shah Zafar kicked off at Red Fort Ground on Wednesday. 
One of the highlights of the book exhibition is the unique 'Pen Quran', which has recordings of the entire holy book. It is a small pen-sized instrument, which plays entire Quran verses. 
The exhibition was inaugurated by former Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quarishi. The exhibition has stalls by Indian Council of Historical Research, Ghalib Institute, Ghalib Academy and Sahitya Academy providing with a plethora of books in Urdu, Hindi and English for readers of every age. 
Tagore's Gora, Azad's 'Tarjuman-ul- Quran' and Firaq Gorakhpuri's 'Pichli Raat' and other works of Ghalib, Dara Shikoh and other writers are on the display.

An Urdu Tarana was presented by the famous 'Bahuguna and party" which was followed by "Sham-e-Ghazal" sung by the Pakistani singer Shafqat Amanat Ali.
