Ghalib Unplugged - A prose-poetic chronicle
Ghalib Unplugged is a prose-poetic chronicle of a fictional poet who insists upon calling himself 'Ghalib'.
The story chronicles his journey from a college student to a popular name at Srishti Theatre Café, Mumbai, where he spends the rest of his life. The book is about his 'performance' at Srishti Theatre, where he is narrating his story to his 'audience'. Laced with dollops of poetry, this book is based on the thought: What if Mirza Ghalib were alive in our times?
