    For a nostalgic afternoon

    Pick up this book on a lazy afternoon or sitting by the window on a vacation and it will not disappoint you .. a lot of stories are picked up from Gulzar's own life .. but they have the ability to pull you in your own world of nostalgia ..

    Gulzar's ability to see the story in the most unlikely places

    I felt that some of the stories were too short. Since they were too short they did not create the intended impact. In some, author appeares to have left a lot unsaid and to readers imagination; deliberately.

    Poignant and quintessential Gulzar!

    WORTH EVERY RUPEE

    The short stories and real life incidents are so simple and yet endearing, that it leaves the reader in a state of ethereal pleasure...soaking up every moment of reading and every word so simple and yet so touching.
    I liked all the stories, and they offer a vast spectrum - from LOC to slum dwellers to Saahir Ludhianvi's 100 rupee note to Javed Akhtar's love for Saahirji.
    Any person who loves light reading, believes in the simple values of life like love, friendship, patriotism, etc should rea...
