The Treasure

Words are prayerfully complaining about whose playful writing? Beautiful images are seen wrapped in paper clothing. This is the opening couplet of Ghalib's Divan and it captures his view of the badly broken world in which he lived and God's indifference to human condition. The poet faces God and poses a question: Why did you create this universe? What was the purpose? If this is your creation, why do we have so much misery and suffering? Was this creation an act of playfulness or did it have a nobler purpose? People praying and pleading in front of the Creator with paper clothing covering their naked bodies is symbolic of their complete helplessness. In many ways, this sets the stage for Ghalib's struggle to make sense of reality and find a new rationale for our relationship with God.
