Chand Nigal Gayi: Gulzar Saab Ki Kavitayein

Full Title: Chand Nigal Gayi: Gulzar Saab Ki Kavitayein

Author: Saba Mahmood Bashir
Publisher: Harper Collins India

Award Category: Hindi Non-fiction
About the Book: 

Gulzar is arguably the most well-known contemporary poet writing in Hindustani. He occupies a unique place by being a Progressive poet in a popular culture. His poetry appeals to all strata of society, without compromising either on literary merit or on its ability to convey the most exalted thought in an accessible idiom. In Chand Nigal Gayi, the Hindi translation of I Swallowed the Moon, Saba Bashir attempts to analyse what makes Gulzar the poet he is. She also draws a parallel between the poet's film and non-film poetry and points out how they are used interchangeably.This is a valuable addition to the corpus of work on a great poet.
