Dewan-e-Ghalib – دیوانِ غالبؔ

I am a die-hard fan of Ghalib, since the days when I first understood what the stuff is all about. He was truly a genius, as is evident from his poetry. Its just so real.

I dont know why, but whenever I read Ghalib, I feel like being happy :) Just open the dewan from any page, and you’ll find a masterpiece lying there.

You are amazed by the combination of simplicity and sophistication:

جان تم پر نثار کرتا ہوں

میں نہیں جانتا دعا کیا ہے؟

And see the style


بے نیازی حد سے گزری بندہ پرور، کب تلک

ہم کہیں گے حالِ دل، اور آپ فرمائیں گے ‘کیا’؟

  1. No doubt Mirza Asadullah Khan is a unique poet. The psychological insights present in his poetry are comparable to those of the great Russian novelist Dostovesky.

    I havent read any works of Dostovesky, but you are right on psychological insight thingie about Ghalib. He had a grip on the subject.

  3. One excerpt from a Fyodor Dostovsky’s book:

    “Imagine you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the intention of making mankind happy ever-after but for that, you have to Torture to death one tiny little creature and lay its edifice on its unavenged tears. Will you consent to be the architect in this situation? Tell me and tell me the truth…”

    Having said that, Ghalib is great… without a doubt….

    Mat pooch key kya haal hey mera terey peechay
    Yeh dekh key kya rang hey tera merey aagay…

    Baazeecha-e-Atfaal hey duniya hey mere aagay…
    Hota hey shab-o-roz tamasha mere aagay…

    Eemaan mujhey rokay hey toe kheenchay hey mujhey kufr
    Ka’aba merey peechay hey toe kaleesa merey aagay…

    Hota hey nehaan gard mein sehraa mere hotay
    Ghista hey jabeen khaak mein darya mere aagay…

    Gar hath mein junbish naheen aankhon mein toe dam hey
    Rehney do abhi saghar-0-meena merey aagay
