Did you know about a desertful of roses?

This project created by Frances. W. Pritchett from Columbia University begins in sheer pleasure, as a chance to combine superb poetry with some illuminating architecture and share it with anyone anywhere in the world. It tries to present basic information about the ghazals straightforwardly. The writer makes no assumptions about you, the reader, except that you are interested enough to take a look, and to find what you can or what you wish. She says “i hope the poetry of Ghalib holds rewards for you too, but years of teaching have shown me that it’s not up to me. If Ghalib wants you, against all odds he will reach out and grab you; he chooses his own readers.”
