Munawwar Rana - Most loved Urdu Poet in the world
Munawwar Rana (born 26 November 1952) is an Indian Urdu poet & writer and is considered as one of the most successful poets across the Globe. Munawwar Rana was born in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh in 1952 but spent most of his life in Kolkata. He uses Hindi and Awadhi words and avoids Persian and Arabic. This makes his poetry accessible to Indian audiences and explains his success in poetic meets in non-Urdu areas. Rana's poetry has been published in Hindi, Urdu, Bengali and Gurumukhi.

Most of his close relatives, including his aunts and grandmother, had moved across the border to Pakistan during the upheavals of the Partition. But his father, out of love for India, preferred to remain here, despite the prevailing communal frenzy. His family later moved to Kolkata where the young Munawwar had his schooling.

The notable feature of his poetry is that he used the genre of Ghazal to eulogize Mother, which is unique, as Ghazal was considered a poetic form in which lovers' conversed with each other.

Apart from his poetry collection, Rana has also penned a memoir. Rana's poetry has also been published in Hindi, Urdu, Bangla and Gurumukhi.

Rana is known to be a sensitive poet who uses Hindi and Awadhi words in the couplets. He avoids using flowery language and shuns chaste Urdu in his couplets, which is a reason that he is successful in poetic meets in non-Urdu areas also.
चलती फिरती हुई आँखों से अज़ाँ देखी है  
मैं ने जन्नत तो नहीं देखी है माँ देखी है ।

जब भी कश्ती मेरी सैलाब में आ जाती है  
माँ दुआ करती हुई ख़्वाब में आ जाती है ।

ऐ अँधेरे! देख ले मुँह तेरा काला हो गया, 
माँ ने आँखें खोल दीं घर में उजाला हो गया। 

तेरी यादों ने बख़्शी है हमें ये ज़िन्दगी वरना,
बहुत पहले ही हम क़िस्सा-कहानी हो गये होते!

मैंने कल शब चाहतों की सब किताबें फाड़ दीं, 
सिर्फ़ इक काग़ज़ पे लिक्खा लफ़्ज़ माँ रहने दिया !

मोहब्बत करने वालों में यह झगड़ा दाल देती है,
 सियासत दोस्ती की जड़ में मत्था दाल देती है। 
तवायफ़ की तरह अपने गलत कामों के चेहरे पर 
हुकूमत मंदिर और मस्जिद का पर्दा दाल देती है।

Why Bengaluru in India has a moderate climate throughout the year?

Bengaluru, also known as Bangalore, is the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka. It is located in the south-central part of the country, at an elevation of 900 meters above sea level. The city has a moderate climate throughout the year, with average temperatures ranging from 20°C to 28°C. Several factors contribute to Bengaluru's moderate climate. The city is located in a region that is known as the Deccan Plateau, which is a large, elevated plateau that covers much of southern India. The plateau is surrounded by mountains, which help to protect the city from the extreme weather conditions that can occur in other parts of India. Additionally, Bengaluru is located near the coast of the Arabian Sea. This proximity to the ocean helps to moderate the city's climate, as the sea breezes help to keep the temperatures cool during the day and warm during the night. Finally, Bengaluru's moderate climate is also due to its location in a rain shadow. The city is located on the leew
