Gulzar Ek Ehsaas

Gulzar Ek Ehsaas at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts

A memorable evening is making its way to San Jose, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for lovers of poetry, art, theater and films. Acclaimed Indian poet, writer, director, lyricist Gulzar will be reciting some of his poetry to a live audience at the Center for the Performing Arts in an event presented by Bollywood Events. The gems written with his pen shall resonate in your hearts and minds forever.

From writing poetry to lyrics for songs, from writing screenplays to directing films, Gulzar Sahab has given everyone something to reminisce about with each work of his. When it comes to films, his trademark lies in always using a flashback technique, as he believes that the present is never complete until the past is reflected upon.

Gulzar is one of the most revered lyricists, writers and film directors Bollywood has ever produced. He was born Sampooran Singh Kalra in a Sikh family in the small town of Dina (now in Pakistan). Deeply engrossed in literature and poetry right from his school days, he avidly listened to Hindustani music, attending concerts by Pt. Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. His family moved to Delhi after Partition, but Sampooran moved to Bombay to pursue his ambition to become a writer. He started working as a mechanic in a garage and wrote poetry in his free time under the pen name Gulzar Deenvi.
