Rumi – a talk by Farrokh Namazi

Farrokh Namazi is of Persian origin, born and brought up in Pakistan. She grew up with Persian, Urdu and English being spoken in her home. Her love for literature brought her to the discovery of Rumi. This motivated her towards reading the poet in Persian, and made her realize that any translated literature loses some of its essence like a flower that has lost its fragrance.

This talk is a brief introduction to Rumi. The recitation of his verses in the original Persian brings the melody and rhythm of his poetry to life.
