Love has and is still being used as a pivotal theme in poetry in the East as well as in the West. I believe that love is faithful and is the yearning of human beings. This is the cardinal message of Stephenean Ghazals.
Love is the important feature of ghazal. Literary meaning of ghazal is conversation with women--it means also affection. Ghazal developed in Persia in the 10th century from its original form in the Arabic language. It was brought to India by the Mogul invaders in the 12th century. It is popular these days in India and Pakistan both.
