Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

I have often mentioned about my favorite poet Gulzar, however I never added his songs on my radio blog and I kind a always felt guilty about it!!!

Today I dedicate this post and my radio blog to Gulzar.

“Dedication is not what others expect of you, it is what you can give to others.”

Saampooran Singh Kalra, better known by the pen name of Gulzar, is a poet above all things. His style marks a sensitivity that is best reflected through his writing and treatment of films. He is one of those sensitive people whose work is laced with the lyrical but psychologically adept examination of human sensibilities.

“The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.”

Gulzar has been honoured time and again for his work. This includes winning the National Award thrice – Best Screenplay for Koshish, Best Director for Mausam and Best Lyricist for Ijaazat. He has also won the Filmfare Award a number of times. Gulzar is also the author of books on poetry, a book of short stories and a dozen books for children. A story book for children Ekta received an award from the National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT) in 1989.

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” ~ Vince Lombardi

I have added songs from the movies Ghar & Ijaazat. Gulzar’s poetry is something which one can only feel if they dive into the wordings …I wish I could help my non-hindi speaking friends understand these :D, but hope music lovers will enjoy it anyway 😉
