Poet, Lyricist, Writer, Director - Gulzar is a writing legend whose every piece of writing is adorned with the lyrical but psychologically adept
analysis of human sensibilities and emotions. He has been penning beautiful poetry embedded with meaning and feelings alike for the past many
decades. His poetry, which he considers as food for the soul, lends an additional dimension to music and to this music he delineates a very
significant position. He asserts, “Music has a natural place in our lives. Right from the shloka you recite in your morning puja and the milkman
who comes whistling on his cycle, to the fakir singing as he begs for alms and your mother humming around the kitchen…Music fills our spaces
naturally. It will always be dear to us.” He has also scripted and directed many widely acclaimed films, each of which are stamped with his
trademark lyrics, evolved concepts and a sensitive story line.
Gulzar’s poetic offerings have always been received with tremendous appreciation. He has published many collections of Hindi and
Urdu poems and their English translations have also attracted a he readership. He has time and again proven that his poetry comes from the depths
of his heart. Amidst the world of commercial films, he has carved a golden niche for himself which is adorned by recognition and accolades of
all kinds. The metaphors that he etches on the mind of the listeners and readers are truly matchless and conjure a vivid combination of imagery
and emotions. His poetry is replete with images that utter words, that sketch stories, that inexplicably do not seem to convey and meaning yet
splash colours of sensibility onto the convas of imagination. In that sense, a lot of his poetry could be called surreal that communicates before it
is understood. And when woven in music, these words create a surreal magic, the one capable of captivating every mind and heart.
Breathe in his vast garden of poetry, fragrant with thought provoking and heart rendering lyrics.
