Epigraph
Dedication
First words
Who has appeared, God? Whose amazing signs have
I seen?
The mirror is now a six-layered principle of lingering.
.
When space is scarce, a speck of dust becomes a whole
mist of longing;
with this net, the vast desert itself is the prey.
Quotations
The mind’s dealer shuffles our circumstances like
cards,
and we change like turning pages in a book.

Book description
Ghalib, master of the two-liner, gives us plenty to chew on. The ghazal poetry form consists of couplets on the same theme, but not connected by a narrative; like the haiku, the ghazal sparkles with unexpected insights. 
Although Ghalib prided himself on his Persian poetry, the Urdu ghazals are his most famous works. 
These ghazals are grouped by topic.
