Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

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

 

Trade

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for the coquetry mercy, but after my departure,

Feeling proud for the exercise of salutation but after my departure.

 

 

Showing skill of acting and glance in the assembly of rivals,

Accusations are deleted from the heart but after my departure.

 

 

You are disturbed by the treasure of attire, me longed for yards,

Now capability is explained to me, but after my departure.

 

 

Forget the sky, try to fix steps on the earth, preached by preacher,

Now he came to know it was not breach of trust, but after my departure.

 

 

Desiring to dress the strand of hair I played with dancing cobra,

Forgot to take permission from diplomat, came in view, but after my departure.

 

 

At last one at least diminished from the crowd of restless,

Now trade has been explained to him, but after my departure.
