The Best of Faiz
The Best of Faiz
Description
From the Back of the Book

Writing poetry is the highest expression of creativity, but translating it from one language to another and sustaining the same flair is a very tough task that Prof. Shiv Kumar has accomplished remarkably.

I.K. Gujral, Former Prime Minister of India

The most outstanding and definitive of all the translations that have appeared so far…… here is a book for all lovers of poetry to read, enjoy the preserve.

The Hindustan Times

What Edward Fitzgerald is to Omar Khayyam, Shiv Kumar is to Faiz Ahmed Faiz…..

The Siasat

Kumar offers fresh insights into Faiz's work….a distinctive contribution to Faiz Studies…. A painstaking labour of love.

The Deccan Chronicle

What makes Shiv Kumar work must commendable is the understanding and felicity which he imparts…

The Asian Age

It would be welcomed by anyone interested in the poetry of the Indian subcontinent

Indian Review of Books

An outstanding work of creative translation par excellence.

Mughni Tubassam, Editor, Shero Hikmat

If Shiv Kumar excels all other translators of Faiz, its because he is himself an outstanding poet.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
The statue has arrived today. It so beautiful, lots of details. I am very happy and will order from you shop again.
Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
