Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)



Until lightness is mixed with impurity, it can not have the ability to produce glory of appearance,
As, the glory of the spring breeze occurs by means of a garden, as if the garden, with respect to its greenness, is the verdigris of the mirror of the spring breeze.
(The impurity of verdigris of the garden is the cause of the glory of the purity of the spring breeze.)
(The glory or appearance cannot be incorporeal and without relationship to substance.)
The way when faced with the turbulence of the sea, the shore cannot prevent itself from being drowned in water,
In the same way whereupon you the intoxicated eyes of the cup-bearer do their work, then nobody's self-control, nobody's piety can remain.
(This verse is applicable to both mystical and the human realms.)
(The way the ocean and shore would mingle, the way the resistant drinker would surrender to the rush of intoxication.)
