I am creating this blog in the memory of great urdu poet "Majaz Lakhnavi", often reffered as "Keats" of urdu poetry. It is a place where you can find all the colors of urdu poetry and all about the poets. I am dedicating this blog to my favorite shayer "Majaz Lucknawi"... So Come and take a dip in DHANAK.
