Ham sakhun fahm hain Ghalib ke taraf daar nahiN
DekheiN is sehre se kah de koi behtar sehra.
Ghalib himself advocated that people should look at the substance in the lyrics and should not like them ONLY because they are from Ghalib. This is a great position taken by the greatest of all poets. In the above sher he says this much about the sehra he wrote for the dulha who was probably a prince of his time, but by extension it applies to all of his shaayri.
In this nazm Jagan Nath Azad gives a well deserved tribute to him.
