about Ghalib Institute
The idea of founding a fitting memorial to Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib was first mooted by a committee formed under patronage of Dr. Zakir Husain,late President of India to celeberate Ghalib Centenary in 1969. Mrs.Indira Gandhi, then Prime Minister was appointed the president and Mr. Fakhrudddin Ali Ahmed (also a former President of India) the secretary of the committee. As a result of the endeavours of this committee Ghalib Institute was established in 1971. It is now a well-know Institute, actively engaged in various academic and cultural fields, managed by a Trust of eminent people.
The Institute also publishes the well-known six-month research journal “Ghalib Nama”. We have brought out a large number of research publications on Ghalib and his other eminent contemporaries. The library of the Institute contains rare manuscripts and important publication. Information technology has provided enormous facilities for research in all fields. We wish to benefit from it and equipping our Library accordingly.
