Mirza Ghalib


He was one of the founders of the modern Urdu ghazal. He received limited recognition in his lifetime, but with the passage of time he has been acknowledged as an absolute master of his art! He has become the most quoted Urdu poet. His poetry has an unresistable charm and beauty. It has wit, irony and a wealth of human experience. His diction can be sweet and simple or so complex and pregnant with meaning that it lends itself to multiple interpretations! This is the mark of a true genius!!!
