Ghalib, a worthless person, this love has made of me

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

warna hum bhi aadmi the kaam ke

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

ye mohabbat kahānī nahīñ martī lekin

log kirdār nibhāte hue mar jaate haiñ

ye mohabbat ki kahani nahin marti lekin

log kirdar nibhate hue mar jate hain

Makhdoom

Makhdoom Mohi-ud-Din's name is reminiscent of his famous songs "Phir chidi raat baat phoolon ki" and "ik chambeli ke mandwe tale" etc. which are part of our memory. This revolutionary and romantic poet from Hyderabad,  loved his homeland and Hyderabad loved him just as much. Sarojini Naidu also loved him dearly. It was Naidu, who introduced Makhdoom to Gandhiji, for the first time, as her son. Fiction writer Wajida Tabassum is also known to  have said that, what ever may be the  word associated with the letter "meem" in Urdu Primer , I  only know Makhdoom and love from ‘’meem’’. Well known critic, lover of Urdu, former Member of Parliament and Makhdoom's colleague in the Telangana movement, Dr. Raj Bahadur Gaur has named his house after Makhdoom's poem "Chameli Ka Mandwa".
