This paper aims to highlight Danish Khattak's poetic work, which is unveiling the profound potential of Khattak's poetry and how it is alarming for the art of Khattak dialect, which is short-lived and asks for recognition. This research paper aims to explore the significance of the Khattak dialect in the poetic expression of Danish Khattak's work.
