    Thanks to Rekhta for creating the Rasmul-Khat course, as I’m now able to read my favourite poets’ works in the Urdu script itself, which feels so rewarding. It is a great pleasure to be able to read Urdu in its original form.

    This is the best thing I took up after retirement. From learning a new language from its basics and then moving on to learn its vocabulary, Aamozish courses have helped me through all. Great efforts, keep it up!
