    This website is doing a fabulous service to humanity and lovers of Urdu ghazals Pl accept my heartiest greetings and gratitude. One small suggestion, in addition to meanings of each difficult word, the meaning of entire line may also be given so that there is total understanding. Nonetheless, great effort. Hats off.
