Ehsan Sehgal is a Dutch poet and writer of Pakistani origin. He moved to the Netherlands in 1978 to avoid persecution during the General Zia era in Pakistan, and has lived in the Netherlands since.
Besides the novel and books of poetry, he published a collection of quotes and articles in 1999. In 2010, having lived in the Netherlands for over three decades, he published a collection of aphorisms in Dutch. The book, De Wijze Weg ("The Wise Way"), was written and translated with the help of Naeem Arif. The Wise Way was also produced in a bilingual version containing both English and Urdu.
In one reviewer's evaluation: "As far as the poetic justice in Sehgal's writing is considered, it is debatable. In spite of some shortcomings, he keeps on writing which is a good."  Indian poet Nida Fazli compared an idea expressed in one of Sehgal's couplets with a couplet of Ghalib.
