Mauj-i-Saba
Parveen Sultana Saba

From a poet as adept with the paintbrush as she is with the pen, this collection of ghazals and nazms takes a pause to look behind at the life one has led, the sorrows that have changed one’s perspective of times to come and the joys that have brought one back to life again.

Bashir A. Khan
