This introduction is meant to be a companion volume to the Complete Translation into English of the Diwan-e-Ghalib.

For the sake of readers who understand but cannot read it, and are dismayed by the complexities of the Urdu script, a phonetic Roman transcription of the Urdu language has been made, based on the Devnagri script. The key to this phonetic transcription is included and will enable the readers to read the Urdu original, placed side by side with its translation, without difficulty.
