5 Best Hindi Poetry Book Recommendations In Hindi To Read
जरूर कोई तो लिखता होगाGulzar
कागज और पत्थर का नसीब
वरना यह मुमकिन नहीं की
कोई पत्थर ठोकर खाये
और कोई पत्थर भगवान् बन जाए
और कोई कागज की रद्दी
और कोई कागज
गीता और कोई कुरान बन जाए
Tearing right through the chords of my heart, these brilliant pieces of poetry!
Feels like the entire life extract of one’s life has been purged and replicated through these mesmerizing words.
Feels more like a soft scarf enveloping the experience of the entire universe within its folds. Indeed, poetry is one such art, especially Urdu poetry, which is tricky to create as well as a truly fulfilling and satiating experience at once. We, in India, are fortunate enough to be experiencing poetry by way of musings, micro poetry, contemporary poetry, shayaris, ghazals and many other formats. Poetry happens to be that beautiful, inseparable part of the Reader’s community which not only represents the emotional tenacity but also the true emotional depth of their lives.
It is rightly said that pain sells the most, compared to any other emotion in this world. Hmm, exactly the story of a poet I’d say. Even though there might be a handful of poets as well as “Shayars” today in our country, nevertheless their followers, as well as appreciators, are in multitude. As a heart demands love similarly does our inner soul and these ghazals, poems and musings are those pieces which attach themselves to one’s soul, completing the incomplete side of us.

Iconic Sufism dripped through this soulful poetry collection, again from the master himself. Go for this one if you love Sufi pieces. Sayoneeee!!
Sufism- a true depiction of love and all emotions in its purest deepest form…
‘ख़ुदा दराज़ करे उम्र मेरे दुश्मन की,
कोई तो है जो मुझे याद करने वाला है।’
‘जाने कब सच का सामना हो जाए
कोई रास्ता निकाल रक्खा करो,
सुलह करते रहा करो हर पल
दुश्मनो को निढाल रक्ख करो,
ख़ाली ख़ाली उदास उदास आँखो
इन में कुछ ख़्वाब पाल रक्ख करो।’
3. Furqat Ke Raat Din by Amit Shrivastava ‘Ameeq’
Depth, intensity, emotion, sensibility, and beautiful writing-an assimilation promise you all of this and much more. An iconic debut, I’d personally recommend it to all fans of Hindi Urdu poetry.

Fresh as dew, fragrant as the first smell of rains and as beautiful as newly bloomed shoots, Ameeq’s unique writing style is refreshing as well as satiating.

A poet whose compositions are acclaimed not only nationally but also internationally, Dr Kumar’s book is a confluence of not only the best possible poems, mini songs, micro poetry, and Kataats but a complete bouquet of splendid springs in the form of words.
5. Karta Ne Karm Se by Manav Kaul
‘मैं पतंग हूँ जिसे अपने उड़ने पर गुमान है
क्योंकि मेरे सामने हँसता मुस्कुराता आसमान है
क्या तुम वो धागा हो जिससे मैं बंधा हूँ
या वह हाथ जिससे मैं सधा हूँ
जब कट जाऊँगा तो बहुत दुख होगा
पर इसमें कसूर किसका होगा?’
This is another superb compilation which is akin to an enjoyable journey encapsulating intricate, delicate pieces of writing adorning it. Manav Kaul’s writing will surely strum the heartstrings of any poetry lover.
