This is much more than yet another book on Gulzar. The author, who has known Gulzar for over two decades now,looks at his non-film writings from the perspective of an artist, a painter and a critic. Through Gulzars writings, some published and some yet to be published, the author brings forth a sensitive writer to his fans who has largely been known for his popular art form as a lyricist and a film-maker.Partition, terrorism, nostalgia, love and longing - these are some of the themes Gulzar is often associated with. Zero Line Par Gulzar painstakingly looks at other themes that Gulzar wrote about - natural disasters, manmade chaos, treachery, politics, and survival amidst all of this.
