Sham-e-ghazal

NIGHT WIND

Ghazal ‘Gayaki‘, the art of singing or performing through poetic expression originated in Persia but was brought toIndia by the Sufis and has become an Indian classical tradition. Ghazal is a beautiful format which many songs are written to follow. They are independent of language. It is poetry in its distilled form to express feeling in words at their best. The poetry when merged with music results into a melody that soothes mind.

A ghazal is commonly the poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. And that is what Snehalaya is all about. Many of our beneficiaries are with us because they too have experienced the pain of loss and separation, but we hope our ‘Home of Love’ helps them to live happy, active and healthy lives.
