Best of Faiz{Classics of Urdu poetry}
Author-Faiz Ahmed Faiz
Translator-Kuldeep Salil

This is a poetry book and Faiz Ahmed Faiz is one of the most famous contemporary Urdu poets of the Twentieth century. After reading his collection of poems I felt that his poetry appeals to both common man and the richer sections of the society. Many of his poems are in vernacular language which appeals for common man. This book is a collection of his selected poems in which he describes the eternal and everlasting beauty of his lover and sorrow of missing her in one of the poems. The verse includes her eyes filled with beauty and the air which contains her body fragrance. He also remembers the hours of separation with her. This is an excellent collection of poetry and the style of writing is also very nice. I hope you all will surely read the book.

review- few things left unsaid



Few things left unsaid.

The first book of Sudeep Nagarkar and published by Srishti publishers. The 231 pages contained are full of romance. This is the love story of Aditya and Riya.

The protagonist was not interested in engineering but end up in doing it due to his parents’ compulsion. But this leads him to meet Riya. They fall in love. During the 1st year they were deeply in love. This book is not just a plain love story. Some unexpected twists and turns happen during the 2nd year.  The key line in this book is -
“Some love stories cannot be predicted!!”
And also it tells us that
Few things should be left unsaid!”

I think that the ending was a perfect one. But the author left me in a dilemma after reading the epilogue by ‘leaving a few things unsaid’.
 But I liked this book very much. The book is not a mere fiction; it is based on author’s own experiences which gives life to the book.

If you are tempted to know what really happened, there is no other way than to grab the book. So I hope you’ll grab it soon.
