(Wali Deccani) ولی دکنی
Wali Muhammad Wali was born in 1667. His pen name is” Wali”. He also known as Wali Deccani, Wali Gujarati and Wali Aurangabadi, he was a classical Urdu poet from India. He loved travelling, which he regarded as a means of education. He visited Delhi, Surat, Burhanpur and also undertook pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. He is known as the father of Urdu poetry, being the first established poet to have composed Ghazals in Urdu language and compiled a divan. Wali Mohammed Wali's visit to Delhi in 1700 is considered to be of great significance for Urdu Ghazals. His simple, sensuous and melodious poems in Urdu stimulated the Persian loving poets of Delhi to the beauty and capability of "Rekhta" (the old name for Urdu) as a medium of poetic expression. Wali Mohammed Wali's visit thus stimulated the growth and development of Urdu Ghazal in Delhi.
Before Wali, South Asian Ghazals were composed in Persian, almost being replicated in thought and style from the original Persian masters like Saa'di, Jami and Khaqani. Wali began, using not only an Indian language, but Indian themes, idioms and imagery in his ghazals. It is said that his visit to Delhi in 1700, along with his divan of Urdu ghazals created a wrinkle in the literary circles of the north, inspiring them to produce stalwarts like Zauq, Sauda and Mir.
He died in Ahmadabad in 1707 in what is now Gujarat state, and was buried in the same city.
