One cannot ignore the fact that Faiz Ahmed is a hugely accomplished poet and his poetry is immensely moving. The title of the book, The Desolate Area, is taken from a famous poem by Mirza Ghalib in his book The Tower.

In my opinion, one cannot undervalue the stature of Mirza Ghalib and his contribution to the genre of Urdu poetry.
