Google pays tribute to Ghalib on his 220th birth anniversary

Today marks 220 years to the birth of Mirza Ghalib and Google is honouring the legendary Urdu poet’s legacy.

December 27th’s doodle features the poet standing in front of a scenic view with his pen and paper. The overall look of the doodle has a miniaturist feel, a tribute to his contribution to the Mughal empire.

Ghalib was conferred with the several titles such as Dabir-ul-Mulk and Mirza Nosha by Bahadur Shah Zafar II and served as tutor to the Emperor’s eldest son.
