Darmiyaan Book by Preeti Nagpal: Review

Darmiyaan is one of the finest poetries I have read this year. Had purchased the book last month but couldn’t get my hands on it a bit earlier. Finally, I picked it up yesterday and regretted waiting for a month. I finished reading the book in one go.

Poetess Preeti Nagpal has brought to the pages some deep thoughts, emotions, and sentiments in the form of serene and beautiful poems. There are seventy poems in the book, all of which represent the smallest but worthy moments of life. I loved the way poetess has observed the smallest of things in a relationship: unsaid words, unpatched knots, loneliness, separation from loved ones, heartbreak, dissatisfactory thoughts about life, depression, and everything that you may expect from poetry about love, life, and dreams.

Published by True Dreamster, Darmiyaan poetry by Preeti Nagpal wouldn’t take you more than a couple of hours to read. For me, reading such poems is more like meditating as you have to control your thoughts and think about what these small lines mean. While reading, I was marking my favorite poems from the book for re-reading. I have shared one such poem on my Instagram handle and the audience really loved it.

I don’t really review the cover of the books, as what matters is the content in it. Though, the book cover complements the poems and the feelings they contain. On the back of the cover, you will find testimonials of some renowned personalities who have loved the book. These include Anil Kumar Kharwan (Author of Meri Ibadat), Satyen Yadav (Author of Kirdar), and Amit J (Actor, Baaghi).

If you are someone who loves reading books about love, relationships, heartbreaks, separation, or loneliness, then Darmiyaan “Sapne Aur Sach Ke” poetry will be a perfect fit for you. You will be able to connect with most of the poems. 

Best Love Poems by Preeti Nagpal

Sharing a couple of poems here as well so that you know exactly how beautifully the words have been weaved.

मौसम गुजर जाये तो अच्छा हैं

मौसम गुजर जाये तो अच्छा हैं

वक़्त, ठहर जाये तो अच्छा हैं

पिंजरा तोड़ तो नहीं पायेगा पंछी 

ले पिंजरा उड़ जाये तो अच्छा हैं

कौन किसका हैं कब तक हैं

ये पता चल जाये तो अच्छा हैं

ख्वाब में तुम ना मिलो, लानत हैं

नींद टूटे, फिर ना आये तो अच्छा हैं

लड़खड़ाते हुए भी खड़ी हु अब भी

जाम और ना पिलाये तो अच्छा हैं

वापिस जाना तो तय है, लेकिन

वो आए, रुक जाएं तो अच्छा है

जीने का सबब मिलना उनका 

वरना, मौत आ जाएं तो अच्छा है

मौसम, गुजर जाए तो अच्छा है

वक़्त, ठहर जाए तो अच्छा है।।

एक दूसरे का इस्तेमाल

एक दूसरे का इस्तेमाल कर रहे हैं

देखो, सब कमाल कर रहे हैं 

तुम्हारे बिस्तर पे गिरे मेरे वो आँसू

क्या कोई धमाल कर रहे हैं?

जो थकते न थे जवाब देते 

तब वही सैंकड़ो सवाल कर रहे हैं 

सुनाते थे जो बेवफाई के किस्से

खुदगर्जी की वो मिसाल कर रहे हैं

संवारते थे हम जिसे तुम्हारी खातिर

उस चेहरे पे अब मलाल कर रहे हैं

कहते हैं खुद से ना रोयेंगे फिर भी

आँखें सुजा के हम लाल कर रहे हैं

पैदा किये, पाले और सजाये थे जो

उन ख्वाबों को हाथों से हलाल कर रहे हैं

एक दूसरे का इस्तेमाल कर रहे हैं

देखो, सब कमाल कर रहे हैं।। 


सहारा ना बने

किसी से प्यार 

सहारा ना बने

बने तो ताकत 

हर हाल में जीने की

गम करना नहीं गर 

कोई तुम्हारा न बने

तुम हो अपने में खास

न खोना कभी ये एहसास

गिर जाओ कभी तो

उठ जाना खुद-ब-खुद

केवल प्यार नहीं है एक आखिरी आस

चढ़ा दो एक अभेद कवच दिल पे

देखो, ये कमजोर बेचारा न बने

गम करना नहीं गर

कोई तुम्हारा ना बने

किसी से प्यार 

एक सहारा ना बने।।
