Gulzar, a legendary poet, one of the foremost intellectuals and philosophers of this century visited Jammu the past week as a Chief guest of the three days long Golden Jubilee celebration of Jammu University “Jashn-e-Gulzar”.
My meeting with Gulzar Sahab was an incredible privilege. He is a true legend and a compassionate person.
In not so long but an interesting meeting with this legend i experienced that he is a brilliant person who expresses love, affection and hope with the words of his poetry. He is a prominent, passionate and sensational writer. His heartfelt emotion shined in the glow on his face and made me believe, beautiful people express their beautiful thoughts to the world through their poetry, songs and films.
An Urdu poet, a lyricist, a sensitive film-maker and a novelist, Gulzar Sahab has been honoured with such prestigious awards as Padma Bhushan, Dada Saheb Phalke award, national film award, Filmfare award and Grammy award. He also visited Jammu University for the golden jubilee.
