Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

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

Unclaimed Corpse


Amazed seeing how I am taught to live in this time,

And when found not agreeable made it humour every time.

Envied upon self sharpness keeping smile on the face,

The head is still intact but made stones into pieces every time.

Felt pride upon my moans whenever found me crying,

"See he became crazy in my love since a long time".

Do not waste the energy creating so many commotions,

Your state is announced by the world at the every time.

Forced to drink the ale to prevent from noisy cry,

Frenzy transformed existence to unclaimed corpse every time.

So much proud of the narration and the mystery of the tickle,

You are declared by the time blowing sparks and fire this time.

Here in lives wisdom, beauty and increase without folly,

If all are minded so, the times should cease again time and time.


Rabindranath Banerjee(Ranjan)
