Gulzar Dehlvi turns 82

Renowned Urdu poet Anand Mohan Zutshi Gulzar Dehlvi has turned 82 and a function was organised to mark the event at Daryaganj in Delhi.

The veteran poet was felicitated for his services to the Urdu world. Former UP Minister Zafar Ali Naqvi, Syed Shahid Mehdi, Khwaja Ahmad Nizami, Matin Amrohvi and a host of Urdu writers were present.

Recalling Gulzar’s contribution, Nazmi Sikandarabadi said that after partition, he continued the tradition of Urdu poetry, mushairas and ‘nashists’ (literarty meets) in Delhi, and in process groomed hundreds of poets.

Gulzar’s association Anjuman Tamir-e-Urdu has completed sixty years and is probably the most active literary organisation in Urdu. Aslam Javed recalled his 50 year long association with the Anjuman but regretted that after the bulldozers moved in around Jama Masjid during the emergency, an entire culture was killed. ‘Not every thing can be learnt in class rooms and traditions like mushairas and nashists enrich the society as a whole’.

  1. Gulzar Dehlvi is one of foremost Urdu poets alive today. I have not read him much but have been watching him a lot in ‘mushairas’ broadcast on ETV-Urdu.His felicity with language, particularly Urdu oetry’s metaphor as was prevalent about seventy-eighty years ago, is amazing. I wish him many more years of mushairas.

  7. listen him for the first ime at a recent Mushaira in Jamia Miillia, He sounds great….And the way he was concerned throughh his conversation with the audience to kepp doing favour for urdu promotion in the soceity shows how much dedicated he has been through his ife for the promotion of this language which is a culture/Tahzeeb in itself.

  8. Gulzar Dehlvi came to Meerut College during 1955 X-Mas holidays and attended a Mushairra. He recited one of his poems (Ghazals) in tarannum – it goes as:
    Raat Yoon Dil Ki Veerangi mein Kahin
    Teri Yaadon Nein Jashne Baharan Kiye

    He rocked the audience. Does any one have the wordings of the entire ghazal?

  10. Frist of all I feel obligated to reveal my identity by reversing the spellings of my name which will give you Nusrat Ikbal.
    Secondly, I wish to express my limitless adulation for Gulzar Saheb’s poetry , his andaz-i-khitabat, his personality and love for Urdo His presence constantly reminds us of Chakbast, Daya Sahnkar Naseem. Firaq Saheb and many others.
    Thirdly, I wonder if someone would clarify if he is the same Gulzar Dehelvi assiciated with movies. dramas and ghazals sung by Jagjit S ingh and last but not the least Rakhi the famous film actress. . If he is not
    then both are absolutely great in their own right .

  12. Gulzaar sahab ke bare men kuch aur ziyaadah maalumaat haasil karne ki garaz se ye site surf kar raha tha. do din baad ambala men ek mushira munaqid kiya ja raha hai, jisme Gulzaar saaheb bhi tashreef la rahe hen. Khaqsaar ko un se mulaqaat ka ek mauqa faraaham ho raha hai. unke saath mushaira padna mere liye baise-faqr hai. main khushnaseeb hun. unke liye do misre haazir kar raha hun ke………
    mire aasman ki zameen par koi aaftaab-e-sukhan hai tu,
    gul-e-aaftaab parast hun main tujhe na dekhun to kya karun.
    Khuda unhen aur ume-daraaz kare.
    aamin.
