The Best of Faiz
The Best of Faiz
Description
From the Back of the Book

Writing poetry is the highest expression of creativity, but translating it from one language to another and sustaining the same flair is a very tough task that Prof. Shiv Kumar has accomplished remarkably.

I.K. Gujral, Former Prime Minister of India

The most outstanding and definitive of all the translations that have appeared so far…… here is a book for all lovers of poetry to read, enjoy the preserve.

The Hindustan Times

What Edward Fitzgerald is to Omar Khayyam, Shiv Kumar is to Faiz Ahmed Faiz…..

The Siasat

Kumar offers fresh insights into Faiz's work….a distinctive contribution to Faiz Studies…. A painstaking labour of love.

The Deccan Chronicle

What makes Shiv Kumar work must commendable is the understanding and felicity which he imparts…

The Asian Age

It would be welcomed by anyone interested in the poetry of the Indian subcontinent

Indian Review of Books

An outstanding work of creative translation par excellence.

Mughni Tubassam, Editor, Shero Hikmat

If Shiv Kumar excels all other translators of Faiz, its because he is himself an outstanding poet.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
