Remembering Mirza Ghalib: 10 famous writing pieces by the poet on his 221st birth anniversary

Mirza Ghalib, one of the most-read and quoted persons when it comes to Urdu poetry, is considered to be the last great and influential poet of the Mughal era. Ghalib who is also known as a gifted letter writer was born on December 27, 1797.

His original Takhallus (pen-name) was Asad, drawn from his given name, Asadullah Khan. At some point early in his poetic career he also decided to adopt the pen-name of Ghalib (meaning all conquering, superior, most excellent). At some places in his poetry Ghalib also used the pen name of Asad Ullah Khan.

Ghalib's words on love, loss and life continue to enlighten humans and calm their soul. His shayaris don't just teach you about deeply complex emotions but also give you life lessons. The poet died in Delhi on February 15, 1869.

On the birth anniversary of Ghalib, today, we bring you ten most famous writing pieces of Mirza Ghalib that will touch your soul.

"Umar bhar Ghalib

Yeh hi bhool karta raha
Dhool Chehre pe thi
Aur aina saaf karta raha"

"Kuch iss tarah
Mene zindagi ko aasaan kar liya
Kisi se maafi maang li
Kisi ko maaf kar diya"

"Haathon ki lakeeron pe
Mat ja ae Ghalib
Naseeb unke bhi hote hai
Jinke haath nahi hote"

"Naa tha kuch toh khuda tha
Kuch naa hota toh khuda hota
Duboya mujhko hoe ne
Naa hota mai toh kya hota"

"Hazaaron khwahishein aisi
Ki har khwahish pe dum nikle
Bhaut nikle mere armaan
Lekin phir bhi kum nikle"

"Manzil milegi
Bhatak kar hi sahi
Gumraha toh woh hai
Joh ghar se nikle hi nahi"

"Iss saadgi pe
Kaun na mar jaaye ae khuda
Ladte hai aur haath mai
Talwaar bhi nahi"

"Unke dekhe se
Joh aa jaati hai muh par raunak
Woh samajhte hai ki
Bimaar ka haal acha hai"

"Humko maloom hai
Jannat ki haqeeqat lekin
Dil ke kuch rakhne ko Ghalib
Yeh khyal acha hai"

"Ishq ne Ghalib
Nikamma kar diya
Varna hum bhi
Aadmi the kaam ke"
