27th July : women poets. (excluding Parvin Shakir)

28th July : #burhapa / umr / tajurba ( again its only theme and word doesnt have to be included)


On suggestion by many members we will be trying an experiment to improve quality of #shair

Each member is requested to post only their TOP 10 ashaar on each topic or shayar and not to tag members, so that everyone can read and RT the ones they like. Tag only @shairoftheday if you want to since I RT tweets from there.
This way members will search for the hashtag #shair instead of just reading the ones they are tagged in.It will increase readership as currently many
Non members dont read unless tagged.
Thanks and please send feedback
