About Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib

Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib is undoubtedly considered as the most exalted of all Urdu poets. However nearly all of Ghalib's readers have been exposed only to his verses published in his "official" divan and, paradoxically, nearly half of his original verses have been hidden from public view.

Dr. Mehr Afshan Farooqi, a prominent Ghalib scholar and some other scholars have been researching Ghalib's "unknown" verses but no real attempt has been made to bring these hidden treasures out into the public domain. The publication of Nuskha-e-Hamidiya is likely to change the way Ghalib's fans look at his poetry - with twice as many verses to ponder upon compared to his official Divan.

Dr. Farooqi gives us a detailed account of the research she has conducted on Ghalib's first discovered manuscript called the Nuskha-e-Hamidiya which is included verbatim in digital form in this publication.
