ABOUT THE BOOK
 
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.
