Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)


Learned from the school of grief of ticker, blues of mankind,

Seen the blemish bareness, that was of the judge of time.

Colour is spirited of human being, every one seems embattled,

claim is that if groan comes out, that also unworthy for time.

Always he has searched for someone to whom he can express,

If applied valour, found in front of shouting preacher of time.

Heard oration of the era but that was totally out of his reach,

In savagery what will happen tomorrow, lost in grief each time.

Always hoped that somebody will come to kill the dancing snake,

In search of that he always met the guide of death time and time.

Rabindranath Banerjee (Ranjan )
