Influenced by the Urdu poetry that might have woven into our childhood memories, as we observed our elders embracing, reading, and writing "shers" from our language, "Chashm-e-Hairan" is a phrase that shares Persian & Urdu linguistics that can be translated to "astonished eyes" or "eyes of wonder". It is often used poetically to describe a state of awe.

Urdu's roots can be traced back to the interactions between Persian-speaking Central Asian invaders from the 11th -13th centuries and the indigenous languages of the Indian subcontinent. This interaction gave rise to a new language that incorporated elements of Persian, Arabic, Turkish, and local vernaculars.

During the Delhi Sultanate, Persian was the court language, and poets like Amir Khusro played a crucial role in shaping the linguistic and literary landscape. Khusro is often regarded as the "father of Urdu literature" for his contributions to the early development of the language.

The British colonial period marked a shift in linguistic dynamics. Urdu started to gain recognition and popularity among the common people. Poets like Mirza Ghalib, with his profound philosophical reflections and mastery of language, became a central figure in Urdu poetry during this time and continued to influence Pakistani culture.
