A rare portrait of Ghalib

Ghalib the Urdu poet who  described himself as a man-bitten muse, remains  immortal by way of his Urdu and Persian poetry and his modern witty prose. His religious views were secular even by the twenty first century standards - I wrote about his eclectic  poetry and also posted a piece on his little,  neglected Haveli in Delhi. Thanks to Aniket Alam, I discovered his photograph and am posting it here.
