Cross-language poetry community Umang goes live

Here at Meedan we love projects that take ideas, knowledge and discussions across languages. We are, therefore, extremely excited to see the launch of Umang: a new community platform that showcases poetic thought from Pakistan and South Asia in Urdu, Sindhi, Pashto, Balochi, Wakhi and English. We're doubly excited because Meedan helped to incubate Umang founder Nosheen Ali's amazing vision. The platform is beautifully realized and the first poems, complete with stunning videos and translations, are exceptionally moving. Congratulations to Nosheen and everyone at Umang, we look forward to seeing the community grow and evolve!
