The Chief Guest of the program and Director of Madhya Pradesh Urdu Academy Dr. Nusrat Mehdi in an exclusive conversation with News 18 Urdu said that no one denies the importance of novels or fiction, but in this fast paced life people do not have enough time to read thick novels or great stories, such fiction. It has proved its importance and usefulness among Urdu readers. The kind of fiction being written with 21st century themes in mind has attracted talent.

While talking to News 18 Urdu, Bazam fiction enthusiast and eminent writer Dr. Muhammad Azam said that fiction is not the skill of telling something in a nutshell, but what is being told in a nutshell should have a story. Not only Urdu but also Hindi fiction writers have participated in our annual event. Our aim is to bring Urdu and Hindi writers on one platform and introduce the new generation to fiction written in both languages.
The importance of Bijm Afsancha founded by BAB can be estimated from the fact that till a year ago the names of fiction writers in Bhopal could be counted on hand but after the establishment of Bijm Afsanch many new names have come in writing fiction and this is our success. Prose literature should be promoted along with poetry and Urdu readers should read true and good literature.
