Customer Review

Reviewed in India on 29 December 2013
Who is one to review Lava, written by Javedjee, honoured by Sahitya Akademy recently ?
But words overflow , just like Lava , it's a reaction to , a tribute for , a celebration of pure poetry.

My salute to Javedjee for saying in the preface that he is not interested in breeding a heap of books.

The beauty of true poetry in my humble opinion lies in the compulsion of creating it in the mind of it's creator
and the compulsion of reading it creates for the reader.

Some gems from Javedjee's inexhaustible treasure
''दिलको घेरे हैं रोजगार के गम
रद्दीमें खो गई किताब कोई ..''
''अजनबी हमको ये दिवार ये दर कहते हैं
पर कहां जाएं चलो इसकोही घर कहते हैं''
''जिंदगी भर मेरे काम आए उसूल
एक-इक करके उन्हें बेचा किया ''
''यकीन का अगर कोई भी सिलसिला नहीं रहा
तो शुक्र कीजिए , कि अब कोई गिला नहीं रहा..''
''दिलका हर दर्द खो गया जैसे
मैं तो पत्थर का हो गया जैसे ''..
