Lets get together to read, explore and spread the beauty, love, mystic and spirituality expressed in Hindi, Urdu and Sufi Poems and Literature. 

What better way to learn and explore a language than Poetry and Literature ? The topics can be chosen together by members and coordinator. 

You do not have to be a poet, a writer, or even very knowledgeable about poetry. All are welcome. 

Some snippets of Poems for your consideration -

Poem by Dushyant Kumar (Hindi)

हो गई है पीर पर्वत-सी पिघलनी चाहिए,
इस हिमालय से कोई गंगा निकलनी चाहिए।

आज यह दीवार, परदों की तरह हिलने लगी,
शर्त लेकिन थी कि ये बुनियाद हिलनी चाहिए।

Bhagavad Gita (Sanskrit) -

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥४-७॥

परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥

Mirza Galib (Urdu) -

हैं और भी दुनिया में सुख़नवर बोहोत अच्छे

कहते हैं के ग़ालिब का है अंदाज़-ए-बयाँ और

Rumi -

"Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing,

and right-doing, 

there is a field. 

I’ll meet you there."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
