The Best Urdu Podcast
Top Urdu podcasts have one thing in common. That is, nothing!
Lehja also has its share of uniqueness in the world of Urdu podcasting. It is a literary recitation series in which Raheel Farooq reads classics of Urdu literature, mainly poetry, with sitar and sarod melodies in the background. We don’t claim that it is the best podcast for students of Urdu language and literature. But our listeners mostly do.
