Triveni_(poetry)

Triveni (poetry)

Triveni is a form of Hindi/Urdu poetry initiated by the poet Gulzar. Unlike sher, a triveni consists of three misras. The first two are complete in themselves, but the addition of the third misra gives a new dimension all together.

A beautiful example of Gulzar's Triveni:

Zulf mein yuN chamak rahi hai boond,

Jaise bEree mein tanhaa ik jugnoo

kyaa buraa hai jo chhat Tapaktee hai !!

Roopa - Harper Collins has published his poetry book Triveni. Sony Music has just released an album ‘Koi Baat Chale’ which has few Gulzar’s triveni sung by Jagjit Singh.
