Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib Biography...Ghalib (Urdu : ; Hindi : ) born Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan (Urdu / Persian : ), on 27 December 1797 – died 15 February 1869),   was a classical Urdu and Persian poet from the Mughal Empire during British colonial rule. He used his pen-names of Ghalib (Urdu / Persian : , ghalib means "dominant") and Asad (Urdu / Persian : , Asad means "lion"). His honorific was Dabir-ul-Mulk, Najm-ud-Daula. During his lifetime the Mughals were eclipsed and displaced by the British and finally deposed following the defeat of the Indian rebellion of 1857, events that he wrote of. Most notably, he wrote several ghazals during his life, which have since been interpreted and sung in many different ways by different people. Ghalib, the last great poet of the Mughal Era, is considered to be one of the most popular and influential poets of the Urdu language. Today Ghalib remains popular not only in India and Pakistan but also amongst diaspora communities around the world.
