Rumi, a great sufi mystic, I always keep on searching some or the other thing about him.

For the very first time I came to know about Nahal Tajadod is a renowned traslator of Rumi to French, I am from India, here I came to know about Rumi through the poetry & music albums translated & composed by Anandmurti Gurumaa, an enlightened mystic.
