For nearly three centuries, the Urdu ghazal has been beloved of connoisseur and layman alike. This translation attempts to capture the best qualities of the ghazal in a contemporary voice. Many of the enduring names of the ghazal are to be found here -- from the early mystic Siraj Aurangabadi through the great Ghalib to modern poets like Faiz and Sahir Ludhianvi. Urdu and Devnagri renderings of the poems ensure that the originals are also accessible to many readers, retaining the essence of ghazals.
