Paji Nazmein by Gulzar
The title comes from the king of Shayari and Ghazals himself, and it is a superb compilation of his greatest works. Whether you're a fan or not, this is a must-read. Because some books must be read and drank regardless of whether you are thirsty or not, don't you think?
Naraz by Rahat Indori
Iconic Sufism characterised this soulful poetry gathering from the master himself. If you like Sufi jewellery, this is the one to get. Sayoneeee!!
Sufism- a true representation of love and all emotions in their purest, deepest form...
‘ख़ुदा दराज़ करे उम्र मेरे दुश्मन की,
कोई तो है जो मुझे याद करने वाला है।’
‘जाने कब सच का सामना हो जाए
कोई रास्ता निकाल रक्खा करो,
सुलह करते रहा करो हर पल
दुश्मनो को निढाल रक्ख करो,
ख़ाली ख़ाली उदास उदास आँखो
इन में कुछ ख़्वाब पाल रक्ख करो।’
Ameeq's Furqat Ke Raat Din by Amit Shrivastava
An assimilation promises depth, intensity, emotion, sensibility, and beautiful writing, among other things. An iconic debut, I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Hindi Urdu poetry.
This is a cathartic ensemble that is additionally intense, sophisticated, and intricate.
Ameeq's unique style of writing is as reviving as dew, as fragrant as the first rains, and as beautiful as newly emerged shoots.
Dr Kumar Vishwas's Koi Deewana Kehta Hai
Dr. Kumar's book is a collection of not only the best poems, mini songs, the micro poetry, and Kataats, but also a bouquet of wonderful springs in the form of words.
Karta Ne Karm Se by Manav Kaul
‘मैं पतंग हूँ जिसे अपने उड़ने पर गुमान है
क्योंकि मेरे सामने हँसता मुस्कुराता आसमान है
क्या तुम वो धागा हो जिससे मैं बंधा हूँ
या वह हाथ जिससे मैं सधा हूँ
जब कट जाऊँगा तो बहुत दुख होगा
पर इसमें कसूर किसका होगा?’
This is yet another excellent compilation that is akin to an enjoyable journey with intricate, delicate pieces of writing embellishing it. Manav Kaul's writing will undoubtedly tug at any poetry lover's heartstrings.
