A master of Persian, Ghalib wrote both in Persian and Urdu; but it is through his Urdu Diwan that he rules the hearts and minds of people even today. Playful yet complex, simple and yet erudite, Ghalib’s poetry mixes metaphors, ignores the rules of grammar, shuns ornamentation and takes recourse to linguistic innovations to ponder over issues of life, death, love and God.
Like any other great poet, Ghalib too has been subjected to a variety of interpretations and translated into English and major Indian languages more than once. The present translation by Dr.
Kejariwal of two hundred couplets from the Urdu Diwan seeks to combine the music of Ghalib’s poetry with a probing into his(less)

Together they are one of the most loved -- and hated -- pairs on Earth. This sensational, highly addictive biography delves beneath the Beckhams' glossy, glamorous facade to expose the real Posh and Becks behind the headlines and the hype.
Celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, hailed for his insightful, in-depth coverage of luminaries such as Princess Diana and Madonna, explores in detail how David and Victoria Beckham followed their passions -- football and fame -- to become two of the most recognizable people in the world. From their individual childhood stories of relentlessly pursuing their dreams to achieving fame together on an international level, Posh and Becks have earned their unofficial titles as the "King and Queen of Popular Culture," and they never disappoint their fans -- or the tabloids -- when it comes to making news.
Their whirlwind courtship, "royal" wedding, alleged affairs, and family struggles have been lived out under the glare of flashbulbs, which they seem to simultaneously court and shun as they attempt to balance their personal lives with their public personas. With up-to-date coverage and commentary on all things Beckham, including David's disappointing stint at Real Madrid and the family's relocation to Los Angeles, "Posh & Becks" lays bare the truth behind the tabloids on this fascinating couple.
About the Author : Andrew Morton has contributed to Posh & Becks as an author. Andrew Morton is the mega-selling author of Diana: Her True Story and Monica's Story, both international bestsellers(less)

"Lionized as the father of the German armor forces and brilliant practitioner of blitzkrieg maneuver warfare during World War II, Guderian created this legend with Panzer Leader, his own highly influential yet self-serving and distorted memoir. While it remains one of the most widely read accounts of World War II, Russell A.
Hart argues that too many of Guderian`s biographers have accepted his view of his accomplishments at face value, without sufficient critical scrutiny. Unfortunately,(less)
