Celebrating the Traditional Game of Urdu Poetry
Baitbaazi is a verbal competition which represents a long-established tradition of Urdu poetry. It tests how many couplets (sher/ashaar) one can store in one’s memory and how readily a couplet can be recited in response to a couplet recited by another competitor.
Baitbaazi is popular in India, Pakistan and the entire Urdu diaspora as a game that enriches one’s repertoire of Urdu poetry and motivates to memorize more and more Urdu couplets. Antakshari is the Hindi counterpart of Baitbaazi, which is also well-established among the enthusiasts of Hindi poetry/songs.
