Mir Taqi Mir (1723-1810), known as the God of Urdu Poesy (Khuda-e Sukhan), is widely admired for his poetic genius. He was the first major poet to demonstrate the hidden beauty and grandeur of the Urdu language, a great gift of India’s cultural fusion.

Mir was the first poet to demonstrate the hidden beauty and genius of the Urdu language. From the raw Braj of Agra to the sophisticated Persian of Delhi and the mellow Awadhi of Lucknow, he wove them all into his verse. He took the half-baked Rekhta of the mid-eighteenth century to new heights, reaching the pinnacle of literary Urdu's poetic and creative journey.
