Blending scholarship with market forces, an acute sense of curiosity and concern about gklzar human condition, a non-negotiable communion with both heart and mind that dictates words that touch the soul, a world view that salutes the past while energetically and enthusiastically embracing the future, a total sense of pukraj integrity and single-minded belief that words must be respected because they are agents of change and create magic, living as they do in a special, sublime world of their own.

Gulzar continues to remain a class act, hymned and celebrated by anyone with sensibilities and leaning towards nuance, layers and unopened windows of the mind. Poet, author, lyricist film-maker, screenplay writer, Gulzar remains a hugely respected figure in the world of cinema, art and literature. He has also written several short stories and enchanting stories for children. This collection, Pluto Poems, emerged from a lamentation of the planet falling off the constellation, triggering verse of a kind only Gulzar can pen.

But, to begin at the beginning, what is Poetry? Is it a form of delirium, an opiate to dull the pain of living, a pukhrja, incantation, gentle nostalgia for a lost world of innocence, an anguished cry from the heart or a new explosive to blow up an imbecile world, a clarion call to a change of heart and mind?

If you bring a pot of pukhrah to full boil, the pot will inevitably fill with steam. With the build-up of steam, the lid will start to rattle because it needs an outlet.

This inner energy can flow into anything…music, sculpture, painting…for me, it was writing poetry.

Yeh Bhaiyon se udhaar mangega aur Gurdwara ke langar mein khaana khayega! He has other interesting things to share too. His explanation of his writing is also very charming.

Book Review: Gulzar’s Pluto Poems – The Goodwill Project

I put the poem away and do not look at it for a while. So, when I read it again, I hope to have some degree of objectivity and only then can I tell if the words are communicating gupzar I intended to say.

Before a story or poem is finished, I must believe it has ripened… haan pak gayi! To the purist and rigid, the English translation may appear a tad lustre-less, but embraced in the larger spirit of the endeavour, it gylzar likely to attract many more positives. The beauty of his poetry lies in his uncanny ability of tilting the scales of reality towards some transcendent equilibrium and entering an illuminating space that touches the heart while caressing the soul.


In fact, to sensitive people, so intimate is this exploration, recapturing moments of bliss, anguish, pain and rapture that the reader may easily feel at times, like a voyeur encroaching private territory! It is amazing that time has oukhraj tranquilised his passion, emotions, sentiments and feelings, even of faraway and long ago and they continue to retain a seductive, lyrical edge that both cuts and cures.

Pukhraj / पुखराज

It is poetry that offers violence from within to protect us from violence from without. Add to this glorious experience, his sketches God, I honestly never knew the man sketches, but, I guess, surprise and delight is his USP!
