ABOUT THE AUTHOR Gulzar
Gulzar is one of Indian cinemaÃ¢s most sensitive and creative directors; a lyricist par excellence; one whose work never fails to surprise, bring a tear to the eye or a smile on the lips; a humble man with humble beginnings who is unafraid of experimenting. A career that began more than three decades ago comprises a rich repertoire of not just films, but also authoring several anthologies of short stories, including Raavi Paar and Other Stories. One of the two immensely popular television serials that he has directed has been on the life of Mirza Ghalib, who commands GulzarÃ¢s heartstrings, and the most recent one is based on the works of one of Indian literatureÃ¢s greats, Munshi Premchand. Winner of the Sahitya Akademi award, GulzarÃ¢s interest in literature is more than just a passing fancy. He writes poetry, short stories, all his works have been translated into English, and he is the creator of the three-line poem, called Triveni. Writing for Gulzar, is his first love, his passion, his junoon, his life breath!
