Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)
Memory of the deposit prompts to think of your portrait,
You have snatched with skill, fate is playing with memory.
It was not the fault of vision but heart, where you dwell,
That is why he is a loser, often destiny is playing with memory.
If erased by your hand, it would have been a pleasurable feeling,
Dagger provided to you, even then request is playing with memory.
Even tears has no courage to console, in efforts to show attention,
How long to carry bitterness, your assembly is playing with memory.
Still movement of lips are there, voice has betrayed the throat,
Standing on the highest peak, subject matter of thought is playing with memory.
By Rabindranath Banerjee(Ranjan)
