Title :
Mirza Ghalib Birth Anniversary
Objective :
To make the people aware about the great poet Mirza Ghalib.
Colour Scheme :
Old Paper
Focus I :
The close up pic of Mirza Ghalib.
Focus II :
The famous "Sher" of Mirza Ghalib, which describes that the every moment of life is the special one and must be celebrated to the best, and still you would feel that a lot many are missed. As this life is nothing but, the bundle of desires, so keep dreaming & celebrating. This "Sher" is not sung by so many singers only but, by the freedom fighter, Bhagat Singh also, during the last satge of his life-journey of patriotism.
Misc. :
The best side of his life was that he was offered to get his pension renewed by the British, ruling India; and it was only on one condition that he was to write a poem in the praise of the Queen Victoria (of British Empire). But, being a true Indian and inspired by freedom movement against British in that era; he clearly refused to do so and hence, could not get his pension renewed and lived in poverty through out his life.
