Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195478177, Hardcover)

This book contains selections from Shah Mubarak Abroo (1683-1733), the most prominent North Indian poet of Eighteenth century. He was born in 1683 at Gwalior. His full name was Najam ud Din Shah Mubarak and his 'nom de plume' was Abroo. He was the grandson of the famous saint Muhammad Ghaus Gwaliori.
Delhi was the centre of literary activities at that time. So he moved to Delhi, where he spent the rest of his life and died in 1733. A notable part of his works consist of mystic poetry, likely because he was from a mystic family. Most of his poetry consists of Ghazals but he also wrote Masnavis, Marsiyah and Mokhammas also. One of his Masnavi, Dar Mau''izah Ara'ish Ma'shooq is a written description of an important cultural rite.
