Urdunama: 'Aurat' and Some Poetry Celebrating Womanhood
This Women's Day, we look at some of the ashaar from Urdu poetry that celebrate womanhood.
'Aurat', meaning woman, has not only inspired poets but has also made poets out of men. Often referred to as 'mehboob' or a lover, the woman in a poet's life is either the reason for his miseries or his joys.

In this episode, we explore how poets like Iftikhar Arif, Munawwar Rana, and Asrar-ul-Haq Majaz have written shayri celebrating womanhood.
