کھتے ھین اگلے زمانے مین کؤی میر بھی تھا - Acknowledging the Shoulders We Stand On

I included the following in the article on Urdu in the Wikipedia; thought I would share it here:
ریختھ کے ایک تٔم ھی اُستاد نھین غالِب
کھتے ھین اگلے زمانے مین کؤی میر بھی تھا
''Raikhtha kai aik thum hee ustadh nahee Ghalib
Kehthay hain aglay zamaanay main ko'ee Mir bhee thhaa
You, alone, are not the master of 'Raikhta', Ghalib
They say that in days of yore, there was one called Mir
—Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib
