Ghalib: His Life and Poetry
Ghalib: His Life and Poetry
Description

From the Jacket:

Mirza Ghalib will always remain a part of India's natural heritage. None before him composed Urdu poems as beautifully as he did; none after him. His thoughts elevate us and touch the innermost recesses of both our mind and our heart. His poems create magic - the words flowing like enchanting music from a flute.

In this volume, the reader will get a glimpse of Ghalib's personality as well as his poetry. In the first section, Ali Sardar Jafri, one of the greatest Urdu litterateurs, gives a brief biographical sketch of Ghalib and an appreciation of his personality and poetry. Then follow translations of excerpts from Ghalib's letters. In the second section, some of Ghalib's most beautiful couplets and ghazals are rendered into English from Urdu and Persian, by the distinguished writer Qurratulain Hyder.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.

Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
