Mirza Ghalib - 27th December

Year 1988, the TV series "Mriza Ghalib" was aired on Doordarshan. This was for the first time I came to know about Ghalib. I was a kid, and this, obvoiusly, wasn't the starting point of my love for his poetry. However, I loved those gazals, not for their meaning, but for Jagjit Singh's voice. It wasn't my age to understand the depth and meaning of his poetry. And, as I grew older, with each passing year, my love for his poetry grew stronger and stronger. It's more than 20 years now, and his poetry is one of the pivotal elements of my life.
