Saturday evening winding down with Ghalib
Originally a poet who wrote only in Persian, he was eventually persuaded to write in Urdu.
“Na Hui Gar Mere Marne Se Tasalli Na Sahi,
Imtehaan Aur Bhi Baaqi Ho To Ye Bhi Na Sahi…”
“If my death did not convince you (of my love), then so be it
If you want to test me even more after my death, then so be it”
