'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.
