Kaarwan Ghazalon Ka
कारवां ग़ज़लों का: कभी सुकून, कभी जूनून
Ghazals are one of the key part of the cultural in India since the end of the 18th century. This book consists of the collection of some Ghazals that are written in the Urdu language however in Devnagri script so that it is readable to more people. Ghazals are specific poetries that are in the form of couplets. The couplets are linked to each other in an abstract manner with a particular rhyming format. Ghazals formed an essential part of expression of feelings like love, happiness, betrayal, remorse etc in the form of couplets also called as Sher’s. The Ghazals in the book keep the sanctity of that platform also ending with a Maqta, where this is the inscription of the name of the poet. The pseudonym of the poet, often called as “Takhallus” is inscribed marking the end of each Ghazal. The book explores various kinds of emotions through Ghazals and has in the end a prose piece about the life of our Poet “ZalZala”. Specially for people who would want to express their thoughts in the form of couplet poetries this book can serve as a good reference to develop the skill in themselves as well.
