Poems Come Home

 
Sukrita . (Author) Gulzar (Author)
Synopsis
Sukrita?s poetry lives and breathes the world of everyday turmoil: the homeless shivering in the rain; the guard at the Viceregal Lodge recounting his strange fascination for the cold, blue eyes of his former masters; the transience of memory; the fear of looking too closely, lest one?s suspicions be confirmed; the loneliness of old age in a cold country ...

Gulzar?s translations ? the ?original? that lurked somewhere in the English poems, perhaps ? bring to life a parallel world of quiet elegance and intensely felt emotions. In the poet?s own words, it is in these translations that ?these poems come home?.

About the author

Gulzar

Gulzar is one of Indian cinemaâs most sensitive and creative directors; a lyricist par excellence; one whose work never fails to surprise, bring a tear to the eye or a smile on the lips; a humble man with humble beginnings who is unafraid of experimenting. A career that began more than three decades ago comprises a rich repertoire of not just films, but also authoring several anthologies of short stories, including Raavi Paar and Other Stories. One of the two immensely popular television serials that he has directed has been on the life of Mirza Ghalib, who commands Gulzarâs heartstrings, and the most recent one is based on the works of one of Indian literatureâs greats, Munshi Premchand. Winner of the Sahitya Akademi award, Gulzarâs interest in literature is more than just a passing fancy. He writes poetry, short stories, all his works have been translated into English, and he is the creator of the three-line poem, called Triveni. Writing for Gulzar, is his first love, his passion, his junoon, his life breath!
