IBNA: In an interview with IBNA, Mohammad Mohammadi, head of the administration, said recognizing and reviving cultural talks between Iran and India, generating a thorough database on Talib's poetry and life, and providing grounds for better addressing of local heritage are some of the main goals of the conference.

He said the deadline for sending works to the secretariat of the conference was extended 10 days to April 19, 2011, due to wide welcome by literary researchers.

According to Mohammadi, some of the main topics to be discussed in the meeting will be Talib's life and works, his state in the Safavid Dynasty, the social and political status of the Safavid era, and the literary conditions of the era.

He went on to say that as many as 105 works have been submitted to the secretariat of the conference including articles from researchers and Persian languages lecturers in Qatar, Turkey, Tajikistan and Pakistan.

A collection of the best articles presented in the conference will be published, he further added. "The scientific committee of the conference will release a fraction of the best articles within a few days. The collection will be titled as Talib Amoli," he added.

The general administration of Culture and Islamic Guidance in Amol has decided to publish a collection of poetry pieces composed by Amoli in Indian style. 

In 1967, a book was published by Sanaei publications on Amoli's poetry compositions. The work included as many as 23,000 of his verses and was titled as Generalities of Makelosho'ara Talib Amoli Poetry.

Mohammad Talib Amoli was born in 1615 (994 hg.) in Amol, a city in Mazandaran province, Iran, located on the Haraz river bank. His pen name was Talib and was recognized as Taliba and Malekosho'ara.

When 16 he exited Mazandaran to migrate to Esfahan and then to Kashan where he met his wife. A while later, he returned to his homeland and after a short stay went to Khorasan and finally to India. Later, he went to Qandahār to serve Qazi Qan Torqan and after his death, Amoli returned to India.
He died in 1657. 

Talib and Zohre is the only collection of his works left by him today. The works was compiled by Amoli's sister after his death.
