Two-day event to mark Ghalib’s death anniversary

New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) A two-day event will be organised on the 144th death anniversary of Mirza Ghalib to showcase his rich legacy, an organisation dedicated to the legendary Urdu poet announced Saturday.

“Yadgar-e-Ghalib” will be held here April 26-27, the Ghalib Memorial Movement (GMM) said.

The event will feature the release and screening of a film on Ghalib produced by Kathak dancer Uma Sharma. In addition, a Kathak performance, recital of couplets of the poet by author Pawan K. Verma, and a mushaira will create the atmosphere of a bygone era.

“While the couplets have been specially selected for the occasion that will leave the listeners spellbound, the dancers will capture three moods; the remorseful, the lonely and the philosophical – befitting for the death anniversary,” GMM said in a statement.

Eminent Ghazal maestro Ustad Moin Khan from Mumbai will be presenting his repertoire with well-known poets from the Indian sub-continent participating in the mushaira.
