Secondly, the Farsi/Urdu words in the ghazals does not have the meaning. So again, there is no use until you learn the meaning. For beginners this is fine, just to get a very very basic idea of the ghazals. Ghalib is itself very difficult to read and understand compared to Mir or Zauk or Momin. So, if the book does not have a detailed account of the background or at least the literal meaning......You are stuck....
My advice. Do not purchase this book. To understand Ghalib, read either from Internet or go to library and search through the books of the scholars or else read through Gulzar's "Ghalib", a book which is the exact duplicate of the very famous serial. Also listen to Gulzar/Jagjit's "Tera Bayan Ghalib" to listen to the letters and songs to get a idea of Ghalib's philosophy.
