Spirit of Urdu festival - Javed Akhtar and Ashok Vajpayee

One of the most elegant websites I have visited, offering every piece of material in three scripts - Roman, Farsi and Devanagri. Please register your name and upload your poetry.  

One of my favorite topics is up for panel discussion, Urdu aur Hindi, qurbatien aur fasilay.
