A year of blogging

So this blog is now a year old. I started the blog last year June-end. It has been quite an interesting journey. I rediscovered my love for Urdu literature and poetry, made friends, new acquaintances and in process managed to get some good traffic to the blog, which I had surely not imagined.

365 days and around 330 posts--not bad. My only regret is that I couldn't write the Urdu poetry in English and Nagri script as well. The Devanagari script takes the poetry to a wider audience but I have been scared to touch the code of the blog and thus couldn't change the design as much as I needed.

Good work, keep on writing. The appeal of Urdu poetry is huge and it is a tribute to the language that whatever be the script it is written in, it is, and, inshallah, will remain popular.

Congrats, aap ka blog zuberthast hai!

For displaying the poems in devanagri script, I would recommend trying the "Indic IME" Firefox extension:

Aap Ko Mubarak Ho!Mujhe is baat ki tawaqque hai ke aap mustaqbil mein bhi urdu ki khidmat karte rahengay.

In an age when Urdu is slowly fading from public consciousness in India,you are to be commended.Please continue to exert all efforts possible to popularise Urdu in India especially in the southern region
