Half a Rupee Stories By Gulzar

Have you ever heard about an Indian Army Major and a Pakistani Commander who used to be best friends and Indian major used all efforts to make their family reunion happen?

Have you read the story of Javed Akhtar and Sahir Ludhianvi’s friendship?

Have you read about all those slum dwellers who were shifted from ghettos to concrete buildings and what all they lost in the transition?

Have you read about an Afghani boy who found himself loving under the dumped masses of cut off limbs and body parts of victims of war?

If not, you must. Gulzar Sahib’s stories remind distinctly of Ruskin Bond and his style of writing about small time life anecdotes. Taking us through the various small and big incidents happening in the world around us, every story unfolds a small mystery or unravels a forgotten memory and emotion.

Thanks to few of the bookoholics who recommended this book, it goes into the permanent collection of books for revisiting time and again.

With just about 200 pages it’s a book you can carry anywhere, read anywhere and feel the magic of Gulzar ji’s story telling very effectively translated by Sunjoy Shekhar. A Must read.
