‘Pluto Poems’ was launched by R.S Agarwal, Founder and Executive Chairman, Emami Limited and Shantanu Moitra the well-known music composer in the august presence of Gulzar.
‘Pluto Poems’ is an anthology of poems written by Gulzar. The poet empathizes with the planet Pluto which lost its status as a planet once and compared how each of his poems is as tiny as it looks from far away.
Gulzar dedicated this collection of his poetic creations to Planet Pluto. In these poems, he addressed some of his favorite themes like relationships, God’s presence and absence, and nature and time with his signature characteristic wit and brevity. Beautifully translated into English by Nirupama Dutt, Pluto Poems is a must-have title for Gulzar’s admirers to savor and treasure great poetry.
