    • Depth of thoughts is surely to fill your hearts ! What i liked the most are the collection of poems from javed akhtar that invokes the realism and romanticism of his personal incidents mainly towards his struggling days , the fancy thoughts imbibed the gospel of modernism towards time and space and many more. I would recommend to readFavnesIn hindiJeevan jeevan hum ne jag mein khel yahi hote dekha,Dheere dheere jeeti duniya, dheere dheere haare log,Neki ek din kaam aayegi, hum ko kya samjhaate h [...]


    • All the poems in this book are online at javedakhtar/tarkash/indexm. Very interesting especially because Akhtar Sa'ab's poems go very much against the 'Indian' grain and expound ideas of individualism I haven't seen expressed by any other poets from the subcontinent (as in Doraha - javedakhtar/tarkash/do) The sheer diversity of topics he tackles (and well) is also impressive. The fact that Javed Akhtar is a descendant of Ghalib was also a discovery for me.


    • Pure elegance. Javed sahab is one of the timeless greats, no questions asked. The translator has done a fantastic job, and very little has been lost in between. The most useful thing about this collection is the English translation provided alongside -vital for illiterates such as myself who can't read without crutches. Javed Sahab belongs to that category of greats - Manto, Camus, Ruskin Bond - who depend primarily on the content and ideas, rather than delivery. Thoroughly impressive work.
