Mirza Farhatullah Baig was born of Mughal stock in Delhi. Educated at the Dehli Madrassah, Hindu College and St. Stephen s College, Delhi, he was Director of Education in the State of Hyderabad. Later, he became the Registrar of the high court of Hyderabad. A distinguished writer and humorist, Baig s essays are marked by their richness of imagination and informality of style. His pen-portraits are lively and sharp in characterization. His language represents one of the best specimens of Urdu as spoken in Delhi.
