Rajkamal Prakashan Samuh has launched a limited gift pack edition that includes Gulzar’s pen, an attractive note pad, a bookmark, and a beautiful canvas bag celebrating the life and times of Gulzar.
Lyricist Gulzar said, “Look at this book ‘Boskiyana’, this is the name of my house. Ashok Maheshwari is an old friend of mine He is my friend since my first song collection was published by ‘Radha Krishna Prakashan’. He is my dear one, he has right to take or snatch it away…. and this Yashwant Vyas, he is truly a magician, he understands me even before I speak, he knows my all expression, he could even guess my thoughts. Both of them have exposed me well and you will believe once you read the book.”
Yashwant Vyas has been an investigator of the Gulzar element. He can catch the rhythm in which Gulzar lives and creates. Yashwant Vyas while giving his views on the book said, “Boskiyana has been a three-decade-long rendezvous of soaking through the effervescence of Gulzar Saheb – the poet, philosopher, filmmaker, and charismatic soul. Distilled into bonds of magical quests sought in memories of songs, stars, and cadence. Boskiyana brings together his philosophy of life where the story finds solace in the arms of the moment.”
Rajkamal Prakashan MD Ashok Maheshwari said, “I had suggested Gulzar Saheb that all your interview should be consolidated in a book, and he agreed. Yashwant Vyasji took up this historic task and completed it in six years. In the book you will find ‘Gulzariyat’ and ‘Boskiyana’ to understand Gulzar’s life and work. We have printed all the books of Boski series. Now this Boskiyana is in your hands”.
