Mir Taqi Mir (sometimes also spelled as Meer Taqi Meer) was the leading Urdu poet of the 18th century, and one of the pioneers who gave shape to the Urdu language itself. Syed Amanullah Meer Taqi was the only son of a Sufi saint, Meer Muttaqi. When Meer was a little child, his father looking at his face used to say which is this fire burning within your heart that is reflecting on your face. Living in an atmosphere of Sufism at a very young age had profound effect on Meer.
