Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

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


Ecstasy of the heart is told see what reply is,

It is known, tyrant's ticker has no heart,reply is.

Why accuse others, while self is the foe of self,

Now laugh upon statement and think what said is.

Form become foe or this secret was confident,

Obsession was upon what statement coming is.

Will remain, defoliation-spring, love-oppression,

Self will not be, earth will trace, statement is.

Rabindranath Banerjee (Ranjan)
