A two-day event will be organised on the 144th death anniversary of Mirza Ghalib to showcase his rich legacy, an organisation dedicated to the legendary Urdu poet announced on Saturday.

“Yadgar-e-Ghalib will be held on April 26 and 27,” the Ghalib Memorial Movement said.

The event will feature the screening of a film on Ghalib produced by Kathak dancer Uma Sharma. In addition, a Kathak performance, recital of couplets of the poet by author Pawan K. Verma, and a mushaira will help recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era.

“While the couplets have been specially selected for the occasion that will leave the listeners spellbound, the dancers will capture three moods; the remorseful, the lonely and the philosophical,” Ghalib Memorial Movement said in a statement.

Eminent Ghazal maestro Ustad Moin Khan from Mumbai will also likely to grace the occasion.
