The greatest poet of all times

Mirza Asadullah Khan ‘Ghalib”  was the greatest poet of all times.I have attempted translations of several poets but his poetry has so much depth and meaning that you don’t even feel like reading anything else once you are high on this intoxication.

The link below from Gulzar’s serial Mirza Ghalib establishes a few facts about him :

1.He always had a love hate relationship with God and most of his Shaayari is addressed to Allah.

2.He loved his wife very dearly all of 60 years that they were married.More than man and wife they were friends.She was also the first critic for most of his work.

3.The young Asad had all the makings of a genius a creative mind, a sharp intellect and education and skills picked up from masters of their craft.

 

ये मसाइले तस्सवुफ ये तेरा बयान गालिब

तुझे हम वली समझते जो न बादाखार होता

These matters of spirituality,and your poetry O Ghalib

We would have thought of you as a sage,had you not been a drunkard.
