ASAD - 1

Originally posted on in 1995

If a series on Sher-o-Shayari is to begin naturally and logically then it obviously must begin with a sher by GHalib. But I also wanted to begin with a sher that praises GHalib. Now how good it will be to start with a sher that accomplishes both!

So here it is ...

sukhan_war = poet
andaz-e-bayaN = style of expression

haiN aur bhi duniya me sukhan_war bahut achchhe
kehete hai, ki 'GHalib' ka hai kuchh andaz-e-bayaN aur

GHalib was never afraid of loudly proclaiming his greatness. That's one of the reasons, why I like him so much. A person cannot truly be great, if he himself fails to recognize his greatness.

- Abhay.
ASAD _also_ stands for "A Sher A Day" !
