Ghalib’s biography and gazals

Any one interested in Urdu poetry and Ghalib can check this link. The webpage carries a brief bio of Ghalib and translation of his works. Difficult words are explained so the poetry is more ‘accessible’.

Some famous couplets from his gazals:

ragoN meiN  dauDte firne  ke ham naheeN qaayal
jab aaNkh hee se na Tapka to fir lahoo kya hai ?

Another one:

unke dekhe se jo aa jaatee  hai muNh par raunaq
woh samajhte haiN ke beemaar ka haal achcha hai

And:

hamko    ma’aloom    hai   jannat  ki  haqeeqat   lekin
dil ke KHush rakhne ko, ‘GHalib’ yeh KHayaal achcha hai
