May 20, Lit Bug rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ghalib's sensual poetry made sharper by wit and peppered by sarcasm make it a memorable, cherished read. Devoid of melodrama, he is still capable of making the reader pine - and ah, so flawless his execution, so heart-rending his poetry! Why the hell don't people write so well, compose so well, and sing so well now?
A plus point of this collection is that it has a poem-by-poem glossary of the Farsi words used, now unintelligible to most of us.
This collection is a sheer delight.
A must-read for anyone who loves good poetry. View all 23 comments. May 19, Swapnil rated it it was amazing Shelves: And since the first time I listened to those I have been in a perpetual lifelong loop of listening to Ghalib's ghazals sung by Jagjit Singh.
The experience of those songs cannot be expressed here because I do not think English language has any appropriate adjective to do that! So being a big fan of the ghazal form and Jagjit Singh I had to take up the entire Diwan-e-Ghalib and this was my first attempt at that. It is not easy to read, mainly because I only understand Hindi and not Urdu.
It needed lot of efforts, reading them as they are the first time, then reading translations and then trying to understand whatever I can, but after doing this all I can say is this may be among the greatest thing ever written on this planet!.. I will keep on reading various translations and keep on trying to understand all of them but if I could wish for one thing it would be that Jagjit Singh was still alive and lived forever and kept on singing all of these ghazals View 2 comments.
I own a pocket edition of this collection, but now that I think about it I have only seen pocket editions of Dewaan-e-Ghalib. Is it only published in pocket size? I have not really read the whole Dewaan, but I loved whatever I read. Of course, I was already familiar with many of the ghazals since my school days.
The great thing about Ghalib's verses is that his ghazals feel very contemporary. Even though he wrote in the 19th century, his thoughts are usually much easy to comprehend than some of t I own a pocket edition of this collection, but now that I think about it I have only seen pocket editions of Dewaan-e-Ghalib. Even though he wrote in the 19th century, his thoughts are usually much easy to comprehend than some of the other popular Urdu poets.
It is just that it's meaning is very obvious even to a layman. Mind you, that does not mean that his poetry is simple! After all, he was a poet in King Bahadur Shah Zafar's court and you can imagine that the court would have some of the best poets of South Asia on royal stipend. He can convey a lot in merely two lines of poetry.
Perhaps that is the very charm of Ghalib and the reason of his popularity; his poetry appeals to both the masses and the literary.
In the poet's own words: There are many other very good poets in the world It is said that Ghalib's style of expression is something else View all 3 comments.
Jan 14, Jibran rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have been reading Mirza Ghalib since teenage years. Every emotion that symbolises the human struggle at its most refined level is to be found in Ghalib's poetry.
Reading him requires a certain mastery of the Urdu of the 19th century, for Ghalib's style is characterised by an early difficult phase, tough to decipher on the level of language as well as thought. Those early ghazals were written in a deliberate Persianised Urdu through which Ghalib wanted to make a statement about his complete com I have been reading Mirza Ghalib since teenage years. Those early ghazals were written in a deliberate Persianised Urdu through which Ghalib wanted to make a statement about his complete command of the parent language.
His later ghazals are remarkably simple and precise ishq mujh ko nahi wehshat hi sahi. But eventually he settles for a style of medium difficulty and these are the ghazals which enjoy the most popularity Hazaron khwahashen aisi ke hur khwahish pe dam nikle, yeh na thi hamari qismat ke visal-e-yaar hota etc.
