    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 !

    This a collection of some of Gulzar Sahab's brilliant work. The range of human emotions and day to day experiences he touches upon in lucid Hindi and Urdu, make for a very comforting read. Pavan Verma's English translations (a tad bit prosaic at times) are valuable in understanding some of the Urdu intricacies which one would have missed if not fluent in Urdu. The collection has all the poems in Devnagri (Gulzar sahab's versions) on the left hand page & the English translations are on the rig...

    Who Rates Legends?

    I am too small a person to rate Gulzar Sa'ab and his works. This is my nth book of him and I am only becoming a bigger fan of him with every single page of work by him. A sheer legend and nothing less than that. If you like (or dislike) poetry, then please buy this book and do yourself a favour.
