Amir Khusro wrote poetry when Urdu was in its very early stages of evolution. Writing in a mixture of Sanskrit and Persian Amir Khusro was doing the very experiments which would ultimately make a 'mixture language' (Rekhta/Urdu) come into being. Hamida Banu Chopra, a Bay Area Urdu teacher, and her team remembered the life and work of Amir Khusro in a program held on Sunday, July 25, at the India Community Center in Milpitas. Here you see Deepti Warrier (at the podium), Hamida Banu Chopra and Dr. Nazeer Ahmed.
