UsTaad : Journey Of A Shayar by Chetan Mahajan

About Book: 

When some couplets written on a piece of paper are making singers famous, here is a story of a Shayar who writes those couplets. From Ghalib to Shiv Kumar Batalvi, poets got more and more famous only after their deaths. Their journeys were speculated by readers, their writings became a part of the school curriculum.

UsTaad is the journey of today’s poet. His name sounded arrogant while his Shayari was painful. He was no hero who had a happy ending. He didn’t preach. He didn’t motivate. Was UsTaad an alter ego, a survival mechanism, a defense mechanism or was he just a today’s poet? He suffered and his family suffered but his pen never stopped.

UsTaad just dared to write it all.

My Take: 

UsTaad: Journey of a Shayar is the debut novel by Chetan Mahajan and its a collection of beautifully expressed Hindi Poems but with a twist of English composition. 

The book starts with Safar, where the author Chetan Mahajan describes a scene where he is traveling on a bus, then continues a wonderful, elegant poem based on the scene written in the Hindi language. This a very intriguing and soulful book that the author/ poet has written expressively. 

While reading I sensed that these poems are written with a great deal of care and meaning, as if was not only easy to feel connected to the poems but it also felt like I was reading part of the Author's mind that he wanted to share.

The Highlight of the book is the storyline that has its own uniqueness and heartfelt poems along with it. A journey of Aseem that full of emotions and full of life. An amazing book that I truly enjoyed. I can't wait to read other books written by Chetan Mahajan. 

Overall a delightful treat with poems and a heartfelt story. This is a must-read book that every reader should read. So click here and read now UsTaad: Journey Of A Shayar written by Chetan Mahajan
