Ghalib and some more

Day 18- Marathon Bloggers

Have I mentioned here that I am ghalib fan? Oh I am a huge fan. I love his verses and poetry. Just cant get enough of it.

Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan, pen-name Ghalib (Urdu/Persian) and Asad (former pen-name)(27 December 1796 15 February 1869), was a renowned classical Urdu and Persian poet of the subcontinent. Most notably, he wrote several ghazals during his life, which have since been interpreted and sung in many different ways by different people. He is considered to be the most dominating poet of the Urdu language.

He lived his life laughing through his faults, pains, poverty, tragedy and sorrows. He was an open book. His works make the crave to read more and learn Urdu. It is such a stunning language.
Hazaaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle
Bahut niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle
Thousands of desires, each worth dying for…
many of them I have realized…yet I yearn for more…

Hui muddat ke ‘Ghalib’ mar gaya par yaad aata hai

Wo har ek baat pe kehana, ke yoon hota to kya hota ?

You remember today that Ghalib died long back.
They yearning for how things would have been if they were the way I would have liked

Bas ki dushwaar hai har kaam ka aasaan hona
aadmi ko bhi muyassar nahi insaan hona

It is difficult for each work to be easy.
it is equally not possible for human to be a human.
Hope you appreciate it.
An old post on the same.

  1. Didn’t know you were a ghalib fan too! Once upon a time, my seniors in college, within the first week of joining, had christened me Ghalib, such was my craze! 🙂
