    This is a book you can read again again and again Poems are short and sweet infact excessively sweet Gulzar can give voice to even a lump of bark falling from an old tree So imagine what a book will it be when you leave this vast nature to him He doesn't talk about nature He talks through it allowing it to speak English translation is also there to help with some convoluted words of Hindi The book is so good that it will become difficult to pick a favorite when you will get done with it This is one of the three books of Gulzar Selected Neglected and Green Poems Rest two are definitely going in my to read bucket

    The confluence of Gulzar's poetry with the beauty of nature can only birth an anthology as uniue and memorable as Green Poems is This is truly a masterpiece from page oneThrough 'Green Poems' Gulzar introduces us to nature in a rather different way by constantly comparing it to our memories our joys and our deepest sadness Every poem reflects nature's response to the innocence longing brutality and indifference of the human nature I for one come to uestion the very fact that as humans we try to dominate nature when nature is and has always been like a protective parent to a very insolent child Gulzar through his many verses also makes it clear that in the process of 'taming' nature we have gone too far ahead in annihilating our basic humanityThis is an anthology that any reader will enjoy Although the Hindi used is not very colliuial the underlying meaning is soul than wordsPavan K Varma's translations do not disappoint
