A Spider & A Fly - Part 1
This is part 1 of 6 of the poem a Spider and a Fly (ek makṛā aur makhī). It has a good lesson, but more importantly it's full of tons of great vocabulary words. Though a bit difficult, if you return to it again and again, it'll start to make sense and even be fun to listen to. This nazm (poem) is written by Alama Iqbal - a famous Urdu poet. Mahwash from Bachpan ki Kahaniyan, joins me to bring you this poem. Be sure to also check out her podcast. She has also covered this poem, but directed at children so
if you have kids you can share this nazm with them too!! (https://www.instagram.com/bachpan_ki_kahaniyan_bkk/)

Love this podcast
I love this podcast! Great for beginning your journey into Urdu.
The BEST in Urdu teaching
FAR BETTER than any other Urdu-learning podcast or app out there. The grammar explanations are perfect for decoding the mysterious ways that Urdu does not seem to align with English. I have studied many European languages, but Urdu can be quite tricky if you don’t have the proper guidance to orient you. The Urdu Seekhiye crew knows how to properly explain grammatical components in order to make learning easy.
