Ghalib's Corner

Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib's poetry reflects the journey from nothingness to a totally human affirmation. Although known in the poetic circles as a "Phakkar", "Khasta" and a drunkard poet, most of his gazals revolve around three fundamental questions: What is the nature of universe and man's place in it? What is God? What is Love? The translations presented are of those gazals by Mirza Ghalib that are in conformity to the above statement.
