NOTE: Because this index will probably become HUGE, everything will be kept simple. Only some prominent examples of each term will be indexed, not every single occurrence. The sign [ ?? ] will take you to the corresponding entry in the Ghalib 'Terms' index, or sometimes elsewhere, for further information. An asterisk marks verses and/or commentary of special interest.
