Neglected Poems (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.379

Contrary to the title, Neglected Poems is an excellent collection of poems from one of the most respected Urdu poets of the country.

Summary Of The Book

Neglected Poems deals with a wide variety of topics from relationships to cities and bring out the deeper meaning of life. The poems are philosophical in nature, encouraging readers to look deeper within themselves and to also look out and realise their relationships, both human and the ones with their environment. Neglected Poems has been translated into English by Pavan Kumar.

Neglected Poems showcases a collection of 60 poems. Big cities like Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai have been showcased in a unique light in these poems. Some poems are of a deeply personal nature like the one on Gulzar’s daughter Meghna. Poems on nature can also be found with a couple of them focussing on the rain. The everyday nature of the topics makes the poems immensely relatable to any and all readers. The poems showcase arresting imagery, adding to their allure. Human relationships are another aspect which Gulzar is intensely familiar with and often evokes in his works. Nature is another important theme that recurs in his work.

Neglected Poems offers both the original poems and their translated versions. The left side contains the Devanagari script with the translations on the right.

A must-have book

It will not be appropriate for me to comment on Gulzar Saab's poetry that is saluted by the world. I can only say that I enjoyed the poems as Gulzar Saab's thought process and articulation is great in this book as well.

I think nothing to speak about this book......

Gulzar is a versatile poet, we know that.Many of poems in this book are joking.Writer share a lot of his things. Pavan K. Varma, who translated the book, is very good choosing words.....

Another Masterpiece by the Eternal Legend! I am too small a person to write a review for Mr. Sampooran Singh Kalra. Any of his work will qualify for great work in every sense.

I am only privileged to read his lines while alive!

Gulzar Sahib's books are not just books but treasure!

Readers of Gulzar are already awared of this fact that these books not like novels that you once read and it is done, these books should be kept with you for much longer time so that you can read it any time in future and trust me it gives you a different perspective of meaning and expands your horizon.

Wish you a happy reading.Wishes to Flipkart for their consummate
