Ghalib is accessible finally

If you know dated words but find it hard to understand their usage...this book is a must...the translations are to the point...not poetic...but they are perfect for understanding the meaning of each she'r... Ghalib has been made accessible... thank you Rekhta...

First of all I must say that the cover of this book is really very beautiful it tempted me to buy it and collection of poems and translation is really appreciable. Not only did I buy this book for me but also gifted to one of my friends and I'll recommend that everyone who loves Urdu poetry must read this book.

About Author

Najeeb Jung is a true Delhi boy who has lived many lives. He grew up on the streets of Darya Ganj, went to St Columba’s School and St Stephens College. Now retired, he can be found back in Delhi though he divides his time with his grandchildren in New York and the monsoon in Goa. When is he not busy translating Ghalib, he can be found watching sports, dreaming about acting, devouring the news or playing with his dogs and cats.

In a previous life, he was a civil servant with over two decades of service to the IAS. He has also worked at the Asian Development Bank in Manila, been a Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies in Oxford, and a Director on the Board of the Reserve Bank of India. He has been the Vice-Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia and then went on to serve his beloved city as the 20th Lt Governor of Delhi.

Najeeb has written two monographs on Natural Gas in Asia; edited an anthology of essays titled The Political Economy of Energy and Growth; published a compilation of essays under the title The Sting of a Bee; and penned a book on contemporary social, cultural and political affairs in Urdu titled Fikr o Aagahi.

This work is the culmination of a lifelong love affair with the words of Ghalib which began as a young child whose mother recited poetry to him.
