    Pavan K. Varma, an acclaimed diplomat, has translated some of Gulzar’s finest poems into English. Some of the most profound themes of life are explored in Gulzar’s works and this book will offer a riveting read for his ardent fans.

    Summary of the Book

    Anyone who is familiar with Gulzar’s works knows that the man’s unparalleled genius lies in his words soaked in poetry. He finds the keenest of emotions in some of the most mundane events of life – in his poem Amaltas, he mourns for a tree uprooted by a storm; in another poem called The Heart Seeks, he brings out the subtlest nuances of nostalgia; in A Day to Spend, he longs to spend a few more moments with a beloved. The man paints vivid pictures through his words, evoking those emotions in you that you never knew existed. This edition of Selected Poems by Gulzar, brings to you some of his best works of poetry, leaving your soul stirred.

    It's as if every letter of poem have translated themselves in english !

    First thing about this book is the translation in English , great work by Mr. Varma the translator . And it's bilingual , Original poem in Hindi and also it's translation in English.
    In Gulzar's own words about this books - "I was afraid of reversal of roles , it seemed entirely possible that reader would mistake them to be the original and the Hindi as translation !"
    Lover of poems ,may you be a fan of Sufi or may you be a fan of Romanticism , this is a must read !
