Regarded as one of the most famous and reputed Indian poets who wrote in Persian and Urdu, Mirza Ghalib is an inspiration for all of us.

Born in Agra, Mirza Asadullah Beg Khan whom we know as Mirza Ghalib, moved to Dilli (present day Delhi) when he got married to Izzat-ut-Nisa Begum. He started his career as a ‘Shayar’ but failed to make a fortune for himself. His life was full of misery as none of his 7 children survived. The pain of his life was very well portrayed in his writings.

His writing Quaid-e-Hayaat o Band-e-Gham Asla Mein Dono Ek Hain, Maut Se Phle Aadmi Gham Se Nijat Paaye Kyun” portrays his turmoil.

He could not make a living out of his career as a poet during his lifetime but after his death, he became a famous name in India and abroad.

On his birthday, we have jotted down some of his brilliant pieces of work as a tribute to him.
