Syeda Masood, (at 12:47AM Wednesday 13th of June 2007, GMT)

Ghalib is a genius. The ideas he represents in his poetry are very deep but unfortunately translations can not do justice to Ghalib.
My favorites are:
Yun to tujh bin nahin koi mojood
phir ye hangama aye khuda kia hai
and
dil hee to hai na sang o khisht dard sey bhar na aye kyoon
royein gey ham hazar baar koi hamain satae kyoon
Another nice one:
tere vaadey par jiye ham to ye jan jhoot jana
key khushee sey mar na jate agar aitbar hota
