Zohra Chisti read the Aligarh’s Tarana

Several Dallas Poets participated as well.

Great Mushaera – Tahir Faraz’s poem on mother called “mayee” brought tears in every one’s eyes. Tahir’s poetry flows like my essays, reflecting wisdom of different faiths in his case, he compared the devotion of Sita and Lakshman and Ram’s banwas.
