“I learnt it when my daughter was growing up and I was writing books for her. Now I am writing for my 3-year-old grandson,” he added.
“Bosky ka Panchtantra” is a set of 5 different books comprising of stories from Panchtantra. The stories are from Panchtantra but the words are of Gulzar. These stories were not written but told and are compiled in the book as he narrated them to his daughter Bosky when she was a kid. According to Gulzar, in a country like India where so many different languages are spoken, no language or dialect can be uniform, it differs widely with different areas. “Be it Hindi, Urdu or even English its not uniformly spoken here. It is different in Lucknow, its different in Delhi, its different everywhere,” he said.
