Dil dhoondta hai phir wohi, Bhupinder, Madan Mohan, Gulzar


Sanjan mallik


              Gulzar won an Oscar today along with AR Rehman.To be fair to myself this is not a review but  just a tribute to the great poet we have all loved for half a century now.
The book is called Selected Poems – Gulzar and it is published by penguin under Penguin Poetry collection.Some great mindscapes and some very profound thoughts wrapped up beautifully in an impeccable  bouquet of words.

A must read for all lovers of Urdu and Hindi poetry.
Little interesting facts :                                                           
1.Gulzar is the pen name of Sampooran singh Kalra
2.Gulzar is married to film actress Raakhi
3.His first hindi movie was Bimla Rpys Bandini
selected-poems
4.One of his most famous songs “Dil Dhoondhta hai Phir wohi” takes its opening line from a Ghazal by Mirza Ghalib.
दिल ढूंढता है फिर वही फुर्सत के रात दिन
बैठे रहें तस्सवुर ए जाना किए हुए ……..
