Assadullah Beg Khan Ghalib or Mirza Ghalib, the poet of the beautiful language Urdu is known for his beautiful couplets and shayari. He was one who could add magic to the words. Love in his words could reach the height of imagination and madness. We are blessed that such a poet born in our country.
So, Here I have shortlisted 1O couplets which prove that there’s simply no one like Ghalib:
Jala hai jism jahan dil bhey jal gaya hoga,
Kuraydtay ho jo ab raakkh, justjoo kya hai ?
Matt poonch key kya haal hai mera tere pechhee,
Tu dekh key kya rangg hai tera meray aagay.
Sarayy raah jo unsaay nazarr mili,
To naksh dil kay ubharr gayay,
Hum nazarr mila kar jhijhag gayay,
Woh nazarr jhukaa kar chalay gayay.
Apni gali men mujhko na kar dafn baad-e-qatl
mere pate se khalq ko kyuun tera gharmile
Ishq ne ‘Ghalib’ nikamma kar diya
varna ham bhi aadmi the kaam ke
Ham ko maalum hai jannat ki haqiqat lekin
dil ke khush rakhne ko ‘ghalib‘ ye khayal achchha hai
Ghalib’ bura na maan jo vaaiz bura kahe
aisa bhi koi hai ki sab achchha kahen jise
Jee dhoondhta hai fir vahi fursat ke raatdin
baithe rahen tasavvur-e-jaanaan kiye huye
Hazaron khvahisheñ aisī ki har khvahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mire arman lekin phir bhī kam nikle
Hum toh fanaah ho gaye uskii ankhen dekh kar Ghalib,
Naa janay woh Aainaa kiasay dekhte hogey …!
After reading the shayaris of Mirza Ghalib, you will redefine the Love for yourself.
