Mir Taqi Mir (1723-1810) was born at Agra. He spent his early childhood under the care and companionship of his father, whose emphasis on love and compassion in life moulded his character. After his father’s death in 1734, he came to Delhi. In Delhi, he finished his education and became a courtier-poet. He migrated to Lucknow in 1782 and remained there till his death. His complete works, Kulliat, consist of six Diwans containing 13,585 couplets, comprising all kinds of poetic forms. Mir is noted for his poetry of pathos and melancholy.
