    Description

    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.

    About Gulzar

    Sampooran Singh Kalra, popularly known by his pen name Gulzar, was born in 1934. He is an Indian author, lyricist, director, and poet.

    Gulzar has written books of short stories, poetry, and books for children. Some of them include Raat Pashmine Ki, Half a Rupee Stories, Autumn Moon, Kuchh Aur Nazmein, and Meelo Se Din.

    Gulzar was born in Jhelum District, which is now a part of Pakistan. During the Partition, his family moved to Amritsar, India. The poet came to Bombay, and was a car mechanic in a garage. His songwriting career started off when he worked with S. D. Burman for Bandini. Gulzar has written songs for movies like Omkara, Kaminey, Rudaali, Baseraa, Dil Se, amongst many others. He has also directed movies, some of which are Angoor, Parichay, Aandhi, Maachis, and Koshish. He has won twenty Filmfare Awards, along with many National Film awards. The author was given the Sahitya Akademi Award in 2002, and the Padma Bhushan in 2004. His song, Jai Ho, from the movie Slumdog Millionaire, won an Oscar in 2009, and a Grammy Award in 2010. Two years later, he was awarded the Indira Gandhi Award for National Integration. Gulzar lives in Mumbai with his wife, the movie actress Raakhee.

    Brilliant collection.

    Needless to say, it is a brilliant collection of shorts of Gulzar, by himself.
    The print and the cover are fine, as is the delivery. So, no difficulties there.
    Go ahead with it.

    great really

    Stories 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 .
    Reading the book you know Gulzar and his book are both worth.
