Shayari and Ghazals

Jan 29, 2014

Lately, some close friends have revived my interest in Shayari and Ghazals . It is interesting to see how many of such shers and nazms are out there, with some absolute gems from innumerable poets

Of course, you enjoy the real beauty of these shers only if you are conversant with Urdu language, and unfortunately there aren't many urdu dictionaries out there. So, I scraped some words off available web pages, and added a searchable interface to create a rudimentary dictionary. If you enjoy the language and need help with some words, try out this dictionary. Here is the link: Urdu Dictionary

Btw, if you are into screen-scraping, one of the best libraries to parse html tables is Beautiful Soup

    Subah ka har pal Pyaari Zindagi de apko
    Din ka har Pal Khushiya de aapko
    Jahan gam ki hawa choo bhi na sake aapko
    Khuda wo jannat si zami de aapko.

    sudarshan fakir has written others as follows

    "zindagi kuchh bhi nahin fir bhi jiye jaate hain, tujhpe aii waqt hum ehsaan kiye jaate hain"

    Apnonke sitam humse bataye nahin jaate, kuchh haadse hain jo sunaye nahin jaate"

    both the above have been sung by Begum Akhtar.

    I wonder whether you would like to include them in your index.

    Thankfully and gratefully yours.
