    One thought on “Diwan e Ghalib / دیوانِ غالب”

    1. ENGLISH TITLE: DIVAN-E-GHALIB (The World of Ghalib)One of my favorite poets ever, and a treasured Urdu collection since long. Ghalib's sensual poetry made sharper by wit and peppered by sarcasm make it a memorable, cherished read. Devoid of melodrama, he is still capable of making the reader pine - and ah, so flawless his execution, so heart-rending his poetry!Ghalib's own words sum up better his place in history than any reviewer can ever hope to - हैं और भी दुनिया म [...]

    2. GHALIB!!well I got introduced to Ghalibs's ghazals through those sung by late Jagjit Singh, the legendary Indian ghazal singer. And since the first time I listened to those I have been in a perpetual lifelong loop of listening to Ghalib's ghazals sung by Jagjit Singh. The experience of those songs cannot be expressed here because I do not think English language has any appropriate adjective to do that! So being a big fan of the ghazal form and Jagjit Singh I had to take up the entire Diwan-e-Gha [...]

    3. I own a pocket edition of this collection, but now that I think about it I have only seen pocket editions of Dewaan-e-Ghalib. Is it only published in pocket size?I have not really read the whole Dewaan, but I loved whatever I read. Of course, I was already familiar with many of the ghazals since my school days. The great thing about Ghalib's verses is that his ghazals feel very contemporary. Even though he wrote in the 19th century, his thoughts are usually much easy to comprehend than some of t [...]

    4. Its Ghalib, what more can one say or needs to say, except in his words:'Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ki tu kya hainTumheen kaho ki yeh andaz-e-goft-o-goo kya hainRagon mein daudtein phirnein ke hum nahin kayalJab aankh hi se na tapka to lahoo kya hain'

    5. No Urdu poetry book could be compared with Dewan-e-Ghalib as Ghalib is the father of Urdu Poetry. The "Khayal", imagination on its peak. The selection of words and phrases with the mixture of Urdu grammar is marvelous. I red it almost 15 times in last 20 years and still reading it again and again .

    6. Quite simply the greatest work of Urdu literature bar none. Amongst the world's great literary masterpieces--on a par with Shakespeare,Hafiz,Goethe,Pushkin. The problem for non Urdu speakers is that Ghalib is almost impossible to translate witjout losing so much in the process.

    7. Ghalib, has always been a treat. His hard life, in having children. The Romanticism with Love and with wine. Urdu, is not a language in itself, it is the an ode to romanticize the thoughts with words.

    8. I have been reading Mirza Ghalib since teenage years. Every emotion that symbolises the human struggle at its most refined level is to be found in Ghalib's poetry. Reading him requires a certain mastery of the Urdu of the 19th century, for Ghalib's style is characterised by an early difficult phase, tough to decipher on the level of language as well as thought. Those early ghazals were written in a deliberate Persianised Urdu through which Ghalib wanted to make a statement about his complete com [...]

    9. I read this years ago and have since been in complete awe of Ghalib. Picked it up again while browsing my bookshelf a few days back, re-read some sections and was reminded once again just how beautifully this man wrote!No one else, in my experience, has matched Ghalib's ability to put on paper emotions and feelings in such a heart-wrenchingly beautiful manner. Those who can read Urdu script should, if they haven't already read Ghalib, make their way to him quickly and read slowly, savouring the [...]

    10. * IMPORTANT * The version of book I have read is composed by Hanif Ramey (artist and politician) So my comments are in fact for that particular version (although its pretty much the same)My Review: I was 15 when I read this book first time. Nearly 2 centuries gone to his words but the taste is the same. It is a book from heaven for those who love Urdu poetry. If you don't know Urdu really then English/roman/Hindi versions are available but I am sure only URDU language can give you the genuine ta [...]

    11. Şiirlerin teması; aşk,aşkta rakiple çekişme,sevgilinin hal ve tavırları, zaman,felek,siyaset ve din. Beğendiğim şiirlerde oldu. Beğendiğim şiirlerin altlarını çizdim. Beğenmediğim sıkıldığım şiirlerde oldu. 'Çarşamba kutlaması' şiiri okunmaya değer Peygamber efendimiz hicretin 11. Yılı sefer ayının son çarşambasında hastalanmış. Müslümanlar o günü dua,sadaka ve hayrat günü olarak her yıl hatırlamaktadırlar. Hint Türk sultanlığında o günün an [...]

    12. Wow. This guy is a genius. His expressions invoke multiple emotions in the reader. Each line delivers different meaning to the reader.

    13. How can anyone even dare to write a review for this collection. No bookshelf is complete without the works by this master. Read for inspiration, insights, dard-e-dil or just to be amazed at the artistry of this master. And to think that he looked down on his Urdu poetry collection, and would have preferred to be known for his Farsi kalaam.

    14. This is the very first poetry book in urdu what I read in my young age. Mirza Asad Ullah Khan GHALIB is very popular and most influential poet of urdu language. No one couldn't write poetry like ghalib, he is only and very different.

    15. Its purely old school. You will be disappointed if you are going to compare with modern poets. Its deep. Difficult to understand. Its what we call pure Urdu.
