GHALIB - THE HEART'S POET

 
Mirza Ghalib is a tall Urdu and Persian poet of Mughal era. He is also a gifted letter writer.     With his masterly works, Ghalib left an indelible mark on the hearts of millions of Urdu poetry and ghazal lovers all over the world.

The trigger to relish Ghalib's poetry came to me one fine morning when I read the interview of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who is an Andhraite stating that he loves Ghalib's poetry. He compares poetry to code. He says that you can say something that can be described in many, many sentences and pages of prose, but you can convert it into a couple of lines of poetry and still get the essence, so it's that compression the poetry does. His very idea of comparing poetry to programming code caught my imagination.

DIGITISE YOUR BOOK READING !

In the era of burgeoning apps for ebook reading on smart phones and tablet computers, looking for a similar tool for desktop computers seems to be an alien concept.

But if you brush aside such notion for a while, there is no dispute in saying that the desktop computer is still the best computing experience in terms of ease and comfort on daily work needs.

With the existing PDF readers, there is an inherent problem to bookmark or highlight a portion of text due to which, every time you have to manually scroll down to the last read page to continue further, which is a horrifying experience. Further the interface is not reader-friendly which makes book reading on desktop computer a nightmare.
