Book Review: Dil E Gamzadaa


"तेरी निगाहें रंजीदा हैं, मेरे लबों पे शिकायतें,

ज़िंदगी है या मौत की नुमाइशें ?

हमने खो दिया इश्क़ कहीं अपने ग़िले में ...

क्या निशाँ आज भी है उन ख़्वाबों का

जिनमें बसती थीं हमारी ख़्वाहिशें ?"


The observations knocked on the mind's door before soothing the heart. The author's feelings are very well reflected in her poems. The sparkling book cover of the alluring poetry touches the soul. The lyrics have justified the book title. Though the verses are written in Urdu, it is easy to comprehend. It is one of the finest languages ever found and best suited for poetry.


" मुझे मेरे नज़्मों की तारीफ़ नहीं चाहिए,

मुझे शोहरत, मक़ाम नहीं चाहिए ..

मैं कभी न गुज़रूँ दुबारा इन हालातों से,

मुझे फिर से क़लम पकड़ने का मौक़ा भी नहीं चाहिए  ॥"


It's a connotation of longing, lost love, compulsion, estrangement, purposelessness, and aloofness. The theme deeply circles love in life. The poet's description of each word directly clicks with the core. The book is beautiful and stirring. Plus, it will linger in mind for eternity.
