The best "about me" I've ever read. Showcases his initial struggles in an elegant writing style. Akhtar ji mentions about his adverse relations with his father and then a helping friend in the initial days without revealing the friend's name.
But I've also read Gulzaar ji's half a rupee stories and there is a story "Jaddu" having intense connections with this one. So we know who was who ; Coming to the Ghazals and poems, majority of them were not that very impressive Especially liked the one he wrote for his daughter Zoya - on finding your own identity. The two liner Ghazals filling in between the longer poems and Ghazals were more appealing to me. View all 3 comments. Only few poems were in the best league and same was the case with the Ghazals.
Although more or less all the shairies were good but since they were only the fillers I will not rate the overall book by them. Jan 20, Vasudha rated it did not like it.
Just in case you are thinking of reading this book, I'd suggest, please avoid. I liked the initial chapter, where Akhtar has given the details about his childhood and his journey. It's very interestingly written and very well. The language used by the poet is too heavy, and several Urdu words are hard to understand.
Besides this, the writing and the poems come across as too film Just in case you are thinking of reading this book, I'd suggest, please avoid. Besides this, the writing and the poems come across as too filmly and many a times boring, hence making the reading very tiring.
It seemed liked the author wanted to show off his Urdu speaking skills unnecessary. I lost track of the actual poem many a times because of the unnecessary use of heavy Urdu words.
Selected this book, because of the popularity of the lyrics written by the famed lyricist but this book failed to interest and impress me. View 1 comment. It's a collection of ghazals by jawed Akhtar. There are some heart touchy lines about the childhood and old age. In some of its ghazals you would find the human values and harmony.
But you may not like other ghazals. You would feel that these ghazals have simply found some way to come out anyhow.
Javed Akhtar is brilliant. Most of his poetry in this book and even otherwise is elegant and lyrical. The introduction where he highlights some of his travails and the tough circumstances he faced before making it 'big' makes your respect for the man increase manifold. However, this book doesn't go into the upper echelons of his works, primarily because the 'ghazals' are a little disappointing and not visual enough. Still, if you want to explore some Hindi poetry, this book is a really good opt Javed Akhtar is brilliant.

I finished this book in around 1. Definitely recommended. Feb 09, Anand Rathore rated it really liked it. Each and every poem of Javed saheb is heart-touching and niceish. Best part of the book was the 'About Me' section in beginning which wins hearts. This section describe his earlier struggling life in a beautiful way.
He uses Urdu words too but overall his poems are in understandable simple language with deep meanings that spread a magic of positive energy even in bad times and sad moments. The subject of his writings often is from daily routine life of any common man but sometimes he also write Each and every poem of Javed saheb is heart-touching and niceish. The subject of his writings often is from daily routine life of any common man but sometimes he also write upon other issues like: political leadership, religious matters, imaginations, poem to his own daughter etc.
Once you start reading Tarkash, you start enjoying his writings and want to get more and more. A must read book for Hindi and Urdu readers. For Hindi Readers.. May 24, Kshitiz Goliya rated it really liked it. Javed Akhtar has presented one of the widest variety of emotions in one book. The pangs of hunger, the nostalgia of an old room, urbanization, the relentless march of time as well as the sweet pain of love - all have been explored in this great volume. My favorite are two - the haunting poem on hunger as well as the one crushing and unrequited love.
The fact that Akhtar uses simple words and even short lines to express his emotions are the hallmark of the depth of his craft. The recurring new ur Javed Akhtar has presented one of the widest variety of emotions in one book. The recurring new urdu words add that touch of beauty to his poetry that only Hindi can't achieve. The short gazals after every poem make you yearn for what's lying behind every page. Read it and reflect at pleasure.
Aug 24, Sejal Ghia rated it liked it. Out of the 49 pieces in the book, there were some that I loved! There were some I liked. There were some of which some parts I liked. But there were some especially from the ghazals that I thought were disappointing, coming from Javed saab : I like to think that it's me, that I haven't been able to fully grasp the meaning. I hope that's the case. I hope I understand the hidden layers over time, as Javed saab hims 3. I hope I understand the hidden layers over time, as Javed saab himself had said in an answer to my question during a panel discussion..
Sab samajh mein nahin aayega. Kuch cheezein samajh mein aayengi, kuch cheezein bahot baad mein samajh mein aayengi. That's helped widen my vocabulary.
Apart from the poetry, his 'Apne Baare Mein' section was brilliant! It beautifully unfolded his life within a few pages, managing to pack in humor, drama, and contagious emotions. I found myself relate to him despite our lives being so different! All in all, I enjoyed the book, but unfortunately this one didn't make me want to make it last longer by reading it bit by bit, like it has happened with some other collections of poetry. This book is a beautiful collection of shayari by Javed Akhtar.
