Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

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

English Poetry Sublimation






Rays are feeble, candle is trembling,


Parrot is also trying to break the cage,


Numerous mourners are on the paper,


Scattered at all the corners---


Looking at me for the new hope,


I am not defunct,


Still I am not deft,


Unable to defy the angel,


Again I am not the sage.



My children,


I provided you all and individual identity,


Spread out in the time,


go to the flowers,


Tell them the message as bee,


Life is a river,


It has to be sublimated by the sea.
