Many desires now rest, fulfilled; so many yet remain unmet.

    It's difficult to understand Ghalib. It's easy as well, for certain persons, preferably a poet. Saadat Tahir, understands Ghalib, One who understands a great poet is also great. Well done, Doctor Poet. (Report) Reply

    It's an apt translation of the well-known and proverbial ghazal of great bard Ghalib. I think translation requires a masterly skill and command on both languages and you fulfilled the job quite well. Thumbs up Sir! (Report) Reply
