हजारों ख्वाहिशें ऐसी कि हर ख्वाहिश पे दम निकले
बहुत निकले मेरे अरमाँ, लेकिन फिर भी कम निकले
– मिर्जा गालिब
Thousands of desires, each worth dying for,
Many of them I have realized, yet I yearn for more.
– Mirza Ghalib
This couplet is by one of the most famous shayar or Urdu poet of India – Mirza Ghalib (1797-1869). One of the most celebrated poets of Indian history, he has been an inspiration for millions of Ghazal (poems) listeners across the world, who understands Urdu, Persian and the language of life. This poem is a masterpiece and kind of anthem for all his fans. Read the full poem here with translation.
Years back when i heard this ghazal or poem, i simply fell in love with his writings and their deep meanings, reflecting the realities of life. This ghazal is my favorite. His Ghazal have been sung by many maestros, and among them, my personal favorite is Jagjit Singh. I cannot imagine Mirza Ghalib ghazal without his voice.
