Ghalib

I am thinking of introducing something into my blog.

Every Saturday I will post about something by the Urdu poet Asadullah Khan Ghalib. My favourite poet and thinker.

The section will be titled ‘Ghalib’.

This weeks post.

It is the Maqta(last couplet) of one of Ghalib’s Ghazals. The ideas, the thought and the beauty of the language define the phenomenon that is Ghalib.

Aatey Hain Ghaib Say Yeh Mazameen Khayal Main

Ghalib Sareer E Khama Nawa E Sarosh Hay

Prosaic translation

New ideas and thoughts come into my mind from the realm beyond

Ghalib the sound of the pen on paper is the voice of God
