Raavi Paar (Hindi) is a compilation of short stories that cover different topics, situations, characters, and emotions.
Summary Of The Book
Raavi Paar (Hindi) is a collection of short stories that are deeply rooted in Indian beliefs and culture, but express emotions that are universal. The tales in this book are funny, serious, ironic, and sensitive. Readers will come across different characters, who display feelings of fear, loneliness, longing, heartbreak, and love. Raavi Paar (Hindi)’s stories are humane and real, thus making each of them seem very identifiable to the readers.
The tales in Raavi Paar (Hindi) are not linked to each other through a common theme. Instead, the author has used the human mind to reveal social and political truths of the Indian society. The title story is biographical in nature, and reveals how Gulzar was mistakenly claimed by another family as their own child during the India-Pakistan Partition. In another story, readers will learn about a Muslim man whose last wish was to be cremated after death, instead of being buried. Raavi Paar (Hindi) has a story about a young girl whose heart gets broken by the movie star, Dilip Kumar. There is also the heart wrenching story of a woman who realizes that the only reason her husband married her was to use her as cheap labour. In another shocking tale, one man pushes off another man of a moving train.
Raavi Paar (Hindi) is a beautiful book that is sure to leave an impression on the reader’s heart and mind. Gulzar’s writing is simple, earthy, refreshing, and paints vivid pictures of each situation.

great reallyStories are small often 2-3 pages except some like 'jangalnama' and 'habu ki aag'. Stories are meaningful and it feels like to be in a time machine(independent of time). It was my first book of Gulzar and I thought it would be just like movies, but it wasn't .

Taste of Gulzarwhen you read it ,you fill sometime is it a story or poetry or a drama or a short movie. there are mixture of all of it. some story is not relevant with today but that is ok to read a path of history. this is a nice book for a reader who love poetic writing in the manner of story

Classical GulzarGulzar, a man with huge talent, be it poetry, lyrics or direction. His way of story telling is unique and has maximum impact with minimum words. every story in this book is a must read. Each story is about 3 to 4 pages, fast paced and with unexpected twist. Choice of the words to narrate story reflects The Gulzar. One must experience this book.

NO words for this BookI first read this book 5-6 yrs ago and it still gives me goosebumps. Kagaz ki topi story still breaks me like it did long ago. This is why Gulzar's genius as a Shayar and a story teller are unmatched. NO words for this book!!
