Laava (Hardcover) Price: Rs.185

Laava(Hindi) by lycrist Javed Akhtar is the second collection of poems which is launched after more than a decade from his first poetry collection.

Summary Of The Book

Javed Akhtar is renowned as a movie lyricist and script writer. His compositions have added verve and depth to many highly popular Hindi movie songs over the decades. Akhtar published his first collection, Tarkash, many years ago. Recently, after a gap of fifteen years, he released the second poetry collection, Laava (Hindi).

Laava (Hindi) is a collection of poems dealing with a range of subjects. Some of the poems have a questioning quality, as if they are probing for the deeper meaning of life. Others go into a range of human emotions like loss, loneliness and longing

They deal with subjects like atheism, the love and mutual support of a close couple, and the anxiety of a father looking for support in the loneliness of old age. The poems invoke a range of feelings and emotions in the reader, getting them involved in the compositions.

At a special reading of the book in a promotional event, the writer himself admitted that there had been too long a gap between his first and second books of poetry. He said that was because he found it difficult to find time in his hectic schedule to compose these works. Laava (Hindi) is a collection that will not only delight the fans of Akhtar, but all lovers of Hindi and Urdu poetry.
