    This applies to the whole site.
    1. If w can add stanza meaning below each stanza apart from word’s meaning.
    2. And stanza meanings if can be given in both Ishqe haqiqi and ishqe Mizazi.
    With these two additional infrmations th site will be a historical treasure for the lovers of Urdu gazal.
    And yes, since we need to learn urdu too, if the urdu script is written on the screen as in case of some gazals, it will be something like “one pe suhaga”

    With Regards
