Contribution of Ghalib in Urdu Literature


  • Hasan, Syed Akif
  • Subhani, Muhammad Imtiaz
  • Osman, Ms. Amber


Writers’ are many but only few are most prominent and have immensely touched one’s heart with feelings of pain, pleasure, romance, hatred, aggression, welfare, security and everything happening around us. Urdu Literature is an ocean of beautiful expressions – this art has been bestowed to the famous Urdu poet of all time Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib. His times are of the mughals era, which then forced out by the Brits and then the Indian rebels in 1857(British Colonial rule). This article is a delightful appreciation on Ghalib’s contributions towards Urdu poetry and literature, while, highlighting the shimmering reflections of his philosophy in his writings.
