REVIEW FOR ANDAAZ-E-BAYAAN AUR - SELECTED READINGS FROM MIRZA GHALIB
Legendary Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib's birth anniversary falls on 27th December, and as a tribute to this great master, La Makaan is hosting an evening that will showcase selected pieces from his works, ghazals and a few of his celebrated letters on 18th December, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. The program is titled "Andaaz-E-Bayaan Aur".
Dr. Fakhre Alam, Lecturer in Urdu, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), and scholar of Urdu and Persian, will be reading and interpreting Ghalib for the audience.
Mirza Ghalib (1797-1859) is widely acknowledged to be the greatest and the most influential Urdu poet. Ghalib, who wrote in Persian and Urdu, expanded the scope of the conventional Urdu ghazal, lending a new dimension to the form of the classical ghazal. His complex style, unorthodox views and approaches, and the multi-layered connotations of his verses have inspired a host of commentaries and interpretative texts by some of the most reputed poets and men of letters in Urdu. It can safely be stated that no major poet in Urdu has remained untouched by Ghalib's pervasive influence.
