Haven’t really done any writing since A Maiden’s Story so thought of putting up a Nazm by Gulzar, which is short, but strikes a special chord every time I open my collection and read through it. I rate him as a master who can say something very poignant and mystic in very simple words. For those who simply stand on the edge and appreciate the enchanting and mysterious world of Urdu Poetry, I am putting Gulzar’s perception of Urdu Poetry and how words flow. It provides beautiful insight on the topic. He also talks about his own take on Mirza Ghalib, Triveni, and thoughts on Urdu Poetry. Taken from the DVD – Koi Baat Chale.
