The Ghalib legend, his art, have struck a deeper root with every new decade. The ghazals of the 19th century genius form one of the purest pats of our cultural heritage. His chaste poetry has lended itself to innumerable compositions and recordings, each one with its own specific interpretation.
The attempt of this serial is to present Ghalib’s ghazals within the context of his life and of his outlook, both to the people and the conditions around him. In that sense, the ghazals hopefully reflect the spirit of Ghalib and his times in their true essence.
The ghazals written by him should flow with his biography. Jagjit Singh agreed wholeheartedly with this idea. He read the script for the T V serial Mirza Ghalib, and the compositions came spontaneously.
In sum, this is our very small tribute to the genius of Ghalib.

About the Author
GULZAR is one of Indian cinema’s most sensitive and creative directors; a lyricist par excellence; one whose work never fails to surprise, bring a tear to the eye or a smile on the lips; a humble man with humble beginnings who is unafraid of experimenting. A career that began more than three decades ago comprises a rich repertoire of not just films, but also authoring several anthologies of short stories, including Raavi Paar and Other Stories.
One of the two immensely popular television serials that he has directed has been on the life of Mirza Ghalib, who commands Gulzar’s heartstrings, and the most recent one is based on the works of one of Indian literature’s greats, Munshi Premchand. Winner of the Sahitya Akademi award, Gulzar’s interest in literature is more than just a passing fancy. He writes poetry, short stories, all his works have been translated into English, and he is the creator of the three-line poem, called Triveni. Writing for Gulzar, is his first love, his passion, his junoon, his life breath!
