Because He is. - A Book by Meghna Gulzar

Because He is.........

Because He is.... explores the journey of Gulzar, famed director, lyricist, screenplay writer, short story writers and what he first and foremost wants to be known as, a poet ! Meghna Gulzar, daughter of Sahitya Akademi award winner Gulzar, has woven the life of her father between the pages of this book. Meghna skillfully transcends the barriers of the conventional pattern of a biography to present a book that marks the poet’s life, career, personal moments, joys and sorrows, in such a way that the reader will feel like an intrinsic part of Gulzar’s life.

His films are known for their sensitive depiction of interpersonal relationships, films like Parichay, Mausam, Aandhi, Maachis, have touched a chord in all of us in one way or the other. The author, a director herself, speaks about her father’s rise to become one of the most respected names in the Indian film industry, a name that now has seventeen Filmfare Awards and seven national Awards, besides innumerable books to his credit! The book is a personal insight into the bond between a father and daughter and the tremendous respect they have for each other’s work. A rare tribute from a daughter to her father!

Do not erase these lines
let them be.
My Child
has drawn them,
with her little pink hands.
Curved and curly.

What if the lines
do not make a form?

In these lines,
I see my child's hands.
In these lines,
I see myself.
