Start your review of Neglected Poems. Feb 01, Namitha Varma rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry , translation , indian-writing. How can one praise Gulzar? His imagery is a blend of the old and new, he breaks language barriers, and his verses are unconventional and familiar at the same time.
However I thought the translation by Pawan Varma was not optimal in this selection. This is not going to be a good review. There is no Indian person worth their salt, with a love for words, imagery, beauty, and poetry that has not heard of Gulzar. I received this book by chance. It came as part of a pay it forward book initiative - and I was open to the idea of something new.
This was new. It did not. It instead clanged like saucepans in a windy kitchen, insisti This is not going to be a good review. It instead clanged like saucepans in a windy kitchen, insisting it be read and found profound. Translations are always a tricky business. And Urdu as a language is throaty and deep, seductive and resonant. The English version has butchered the words of Gulzar.
What I read has traces of sublimity and you can catch a whiff of what the poet intended. If you come to the table without any bias, you can call this book of verse vapid and sorely lacking in depth. I wonder if I have been impatient, harboured unreasonable expectations, or simply did not let myself be taken under by the intoxicant nature of poetry.
But I cannot deny the abject nothingness and indifference I felt for this book. If I wish for one thing, it is to know how to read Hindi. Jan 08, Agyani rated it it was ok Shelves: Barring few poems, the book is not worth its price. May 18, Niel rated it it was amazing. Base-less are the names of god No longer can they be filled up with reverence of faith! Jun 14, Vasudha rated it it was amazing. Beautiful collection of poem by Gulzar sir. The imageries used are so simple and yet so flavorful.
A must read for people who enjoy poetry. Jan 01, Abhidev H M rated it really liked it. Feb 13, Manisha rated it it was amazing. This book of Gulzar ji has 60 poems. The first poem is about his daughter Meghna.
There are poems written on places Gujrat, Mumbai, Chennai etc. There are poems about rains Monsoon Symphony, When it Rains etc. The book has a typical Gulzar ji touch and you can feel his magic as you go on reading. The translations are made in an easy language and do not affect the effect of original poems.
There is not a single long poem Deergh Kavita in this collection. The only minus point i could find was not about the type setting. Pavan ji looked acutely embarrassed. He started to explain that the delay in translating the new poems was because of his change of office and designation Suddenly he saw a smile on my face and realized that i was joking.
It is now time to share the joke with everyone. Here they are then : Neglected Poems. Naye aaveje nageene kaano mein latakte dekh kar koyal khabar deti hai Baari aam ki aayi!
Apr 05, The Lit Room added it. After having attended an interactive session with Gulzar at the Bangalore International Literature festival, I was keen on reading some of his lyrics that were independent of films. I was lucky enough to find videos online where he recited some of his own poems in his captivating voice. Out of the many options I was given by online book stores, what intrigued me was a book by the name Neglected Poems.
Characteristically, the poems are not vigorously expressive. But the beauty in which common them After having attended an interactive session with Gulzar at the Bangalore International Literature festival, I was keen on reading some of his lyrics that were independent of films. But the beauty in which common themes are narrated in the form of a poem with deep philosophical underlining and sometimes with the usage of witty metaphors, is ineffable.
The book consists of the original version in Hindi followed by an English version. Though I personally do not prefer the translated version, it extends the boundaries of cultural knowledge and helping out at times when stuck with a word or phrase. Like any other translations the translation has taken the edge off, giving the reader a feeling of having read simple anecdotes with beautiful similes and metaphors.
Jun 01, Dhanvant rated it it was amazing. This collection of poems given a peculiar name "Neglected Poems" is definitely not to neglect. It contains 60 poems by Gulzar which you will absolutely love if you are fond of poems. Well, there's not much you can say about Gulzar, his name is enough to describe the depth and sensitivity of his words. When you read his poems you wonder this man seems to belong to some other planet than we live. No one, absolutely no one can see the world the way he does.
Don't miss this book, it would be a crime This collection of poems given a peculiar name "Neglected Poems" is definitely not to neglect. Don't miss this book, it would be a crime for a poem lover to neglect these Neglected Poem. Sep 16, Samir rated it really liked it. I see why poems from the collection "Neglected Poems by Gulzar" are titled as 'Neglected' These poems have a certain offbeat nature.
How often we neglect things whose values we know yet not realize. It gives to me a sense of God being there, yet not there, for he is everywhere and not here. How often have we felt the same, that God is hiding from us. He looks at life and observes it as it passes by; at a traffic signal, on a cold morning, or life in the mountains. Some are easy to imagine, easy to picture in our mind, and others take more time to understand.
