GHALIB & SADEQUAIN (BKS: 1216)
This book Ghalib and SADEQUAIN contains 25 verses of Ghalib. The corresponding paintings by Sadequain are shown on the opposite page of the text. Sadequain painted a total of 50 interpretations based on Ghalib’s poetry, but only 25 were located by the SADEQUAIN Foundation that are included in this book.
This visual journey through a blissful odyssey is an unadulterated experience of heightened awareness, as our senses process these mystic images and nurture our experiences for a meaningful life. These paintings reflect various states of self-realization and consciousness. When we are not in control of our intrinsic potentialities, they may stray off the course. But if we reach down and attain awareness of our innermost sentiments, then they manifest themselves in rapturous passion.
Ghalib’s ghazals have an influence of Sufi Mysticism, and therefore, the expression of love can either be interpreted as directed toward a higher being or for a mortal beloved. This expression, in either case, is intended to lift the believer to the ranks of the higher order and provide satisfaction to the soul. In keeping with the traditions of the classical ghazal, the gender of the beloved in most of Ghalib’s verses is elusive. It has thus been argued that his ghazals consist mostly of “sonnets about eternal love” in the traditional sense of the term.
