Event Description : BOOK DISCUSSION "The Evolution of Ghalib"

The importance of the book lies in the fact that for the first time an attempt has been made to trace the trajectory of intellectual evolution of that great intellectual colossus, Mirza Ghalib, arguably the greatest Urdu poet ever, through a careful selection and interpretation of his chronologically arranged ghazal couplets. It is an attempt to bring to focus the irrational arrangement of Urdu poetry (of any poet) in accordance with the ending alphabet of the couplet, and not in accordance with time, thereby (inadvertently) eliminating the possibility of studying an intellectual in evolution.

Talk by Shri Hasan Abdullah, author of  The Evolution of Ghalib,   and Shri A.  Naseeb Khan, translator of selected verses, published by Rupa Publications (2017)

Discussants: Professor Irfan Habib,  Shri Pawan Verma and Professor Harbans Mukhia
