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.
