محمد تقی مِیرؔ
Born in Agra, Mir's philosophy of life was formed primarily by his father, a religious man with a large following, whose emphasis on the importance of love and the value of compassion remained with Mir throughout his life and imbued his poetry.
One of the principal poets of the Delhi School of the Urdu ghazal Mir lived much of his life in Mughal Delhi, Kuchha Chelan, in Old Delhi. In 1748, he eventually moved to the court of Asaf-ud-Daulah in Lucknow.
