This book contains a selection of poems by Jigar Muradabadi, one of the most celebrated ghazal poets of the Urdu language. Jigar was hailed as the greatest exponent of this form, and dominated poetry recitals from 1940 to 1960. Jigar combined a sonorous diction with lyrical abandon, and this proved to be a magic formula with which he mesmerized large audiences attending poetry recitals. While, on one level, his poems can be read as uninhibited love poetry, Jigar had a transcendental style and a natural bent toward Sufism which caused his poems to be read as esoteric verse.
