Website for Ghani Khan, the great Pashto poet

Ghani Khan (1914-96), son of the reknowned Pashtun leader Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, is reckoned by many to be the greatest Pashto language poet of the twentieth century. You can find an excellent website, containing translations of many of his finest poems and more biographical information, here. I very much enjoyed the poem called 'Leader'. And read the guest book.
