In reality, Ghazal is a form of Persian poetry that found its way into Urdu literature. The word “”Ghazal”” means the expression of love between lovers. However, over time, it has undergone significant changes and now encompasses various themes beyond love. Today, Hindi Ghazal has carved its own niche in the literary world.

Contemporary poet Dushyant Kumar played a pivotal role in elevating Hindi Ghazal. He connected Ghazals with the common people by taking it out of the alleys and taverns and into mainstream society. Ghazals now comment on social situations, governance, and power.

A Ghazal is a collection of couplets written according to a specific meter. The first couplet is called “”Matla”” and the last one “”Maqta.”” Each Ghazal’s lines follow a rhyme scheme, and repeated words are called “”Radif.”” Additionally, “”Nazm”” is another popular form of poetry with a single theme.

“”I am primarily a poet, but after joining Facebook, I was inspired by some of my friends’ Ghazals. Based on the knowledge I gained from Google, Kavyodaya Sanstha, and my Ghazal artist friends, I was able to create this collection of Ghazals, ‘Pyar Ki Reet.’ The title reflects the changing nature and forms of love that we experience from childhood to old age.””
