I don’t read Hindi literature much, but I’m glad I picked this one up. The poems in this book are so heartfelt, charming and relatable that readers will surely connect. In fact some poems make you feel like they’ve been written by you! Such is their relatability. May favourite ones are घोसला and वह इश्क़.

What I liked about the book:
—> Simple and yet relatable topics and language.
—> Can be finished in two days max.
—> I was either smiling or nodding away at most of the lines, which is quite rare for me as a reader.

Quotable quotes:
—> रोने वाला दिल में ही रो लेता है आँखों में आँसू आये यह ज़रूरी तो नहीं
उनसे बातें तो चुप रह के भी हो जाती है शब्दों से खेलना ज़रूरी तो नहीं
—> फुर्सत का सही इस्तेमाल करने लगे हैं हम तक़दीर की नहीं , दिल की सुनने लगे हैं हम
—> कहते है मंज़िल मिलते ही रास्ते ख़त्म हो जाते है तो इस सफर में हम नाकाम रहे तो अच्छा है
—> माँ के हाथ का खाना है उसमें स्वाद है , प्यार है बेशक पापा की डाँट भी है पर रात को सोते वक़्त माँ का सर पे हाथ भी है
—> वह इश्क़ ही क्या जिसमे रूठना मनाना न हो वह इश्क़ ही क्या जिसमें खट्टा मीठा फ़साना न हो
