Dec 27 2007
Today, December 27th is 211th Birth Anniversary of Mirza Ghalib, the legendary Urdu Poet. I don’t need to really say anything about him, for anyone who has ever delved into the tender world of Urdu Poetry knows about Mirza Sahab. After a long gap, I am posting one of my Nazms. I wrote this one during my trip to India.
I had actually written it 2 days after I wrote Meri Waaqif Hai, which for some reason everyone liked. Anyhow, this one was penned in kind of a Transcendental frame of mind when I was neither concentrating nor contemplating. Enjoy the Nazm and may Mirza Nausha look down upon it from his abode. For some friends who can’t read Hindi, I am putting up a recitation. I also played the Score of the famous song If in the background, which I had also performed on Keedy Night. Kind of like a fusion work. Now mates will know how hoarse I sound at 1 AM 🙂 Here is the MP3 if you are having buffer issues.
