Previously, I have written about Mirza Ghalib when I had finished reading the book Mirza Ghalib: A Biographical Scenario by Gulzar. I read about his house and the lanes where he strolled. Here are a few pictures from the present day Ghalib Memorial at Ballimaran, Delhi. The nearest metro stop is Chawri Bazaar.

The words originated here and they stayed here…

“Garcha hai mulke Deccan mein in dinon qadr-e sukhan
kaun jaye Zauq per Dilli ki galiyan chhor kar!”

Who will now leave these lanes of Dilli
So what if prosperity camps in the Deccan!
