The website is available in three languages - Urdu, Hindi and English, "thus majorly catering to all segments of users. The site has recently been made responsive, which would enable users across all platforms, including desktops and laptops, tablets and mobile phones", Saraf said.

He said what differentiates the website "is its enriching content that encompasses all genres of Urdu literature. The site boasts of not only a splendid collection of Urdu poetry, ghazals, nazms, marsiyas, rekhti and short stories, but also carries may rarely available books and magazines in the form of e-books".

To facilitate nascent lovers of Urdu poetry, the new website has a beginners section to guide them in exploring the world of Urdu literature. The Editor's Choice section "will enable users browse through select and quality Urdu collections which is a must-see for all visitors," Saraf pointed out.
