Selected Poems – Gulzar

Gulzar won an Oscar today along with AR Rehman.To be fair to myself this is not a review but  just a tribute to the great poet we have all loved for half a century now.

The book is called Selected Poems – Gulzar and it is published by penguin under Penguin Poetry collection.Some great mindscapes and some very profound thoughts wrapped up beautifully in an impeccable  bouquet of words.

A must read for all lovers of Urdu and Hindi poetry.
