Larzish An Evening Of Poetry
Another edition of Larzish is here...And this time we read poems about conversations, real or imagined. Yes, the subject is guftagoo...
The kind that strips words from their veneer and gives them hurtful edges.
As Daag Dehelvi said, "ranj kii jab guftaguu hone lagi
aap se tum tum se tuu hone lagi."
Or as Javed Akhtar said about conversations that are tender, fragrant like blossoms
"ab tak hai koii baat mujhe yaad harf harf
ab tak main chun rahaa huun kisii guftaguu ke phuul."
And what about conversations that are full of words but say nothing?
As Ahmed Faraz put it, "lab-o-dahan bhii milaa guftaguu kaa fan bhii milaa magar jo dil pe guzaratii hai kah sakuu.N bhii nahiin."
So come and read your poems in Hindi, Urdu or English, about things that were said or you wish, could be unsaid.
About conversations that make or break connections.
