Abu-Abdollah Ja’far Bin Mohammad Roodaki was
born in a village, Roodak, near Bokhara (900), so he
was famed as Roodaki. He was blind. Some believed
that he was born blind, but it couldn’t be a correct
opinion about a poet who could explain the nature
in such details. He had about one million poems but just
some of them are available today.

Roodaki had an elegant poetic verve and an admirable
song. He played Reed (flute) skillfully. He knew Islamic
sciences well. He made Kaleelah va Demnah into verse.

I have decided to use the artwork of blind men and woman specially the luminaries for the pages.

I just called to say I love You!
