Mirza Ghalib yet stands unparalleled in the world of Urdu poetry. His body of work was not just reflective of the turbulent times that he wrote in, but also resonated with beauty, culture, passion, love, longing and was resplendent with imagery. His ghazals are unique, as he wrote about all the phases of life. He was endowed with a passionate appreciation of life, yet deeply questioned the very fundamentals of faith and dogma. His philosophy and views on the times that he lived and worked in are the most relevant. Ghalib is inarguably one of the greatest poets of all times.Based on the eponymous serial made by renowned director, lyricist and poet Gulzar, this book presents Mirza Ghalib’s life and poetry in the form of a scenario, moving away from the conventional format of a biography. Mirza Ghalib: A Biographical Scenario is an extremely important historic and creative document.
