's review

it was amazing

This book of elegant, sophisticated poems, 51 in all, is by an Indian writer. His manner of turning a phrase is uniquely his alone. Each poem inhabits but one page, mostly, but every one of them grabs you the instant you begin to read. Forthright, evocative, each easygoing poem beckons you into reading more. The entire book’s beautifully flowing language is written to cover a deeply wide variety of topics. This is no ordinary book of simplistic love poetry or redundant religious verse. Rather, the poet takes you on a revealing journey involving hidden, dramatic and political aspects of Indian culture. A must-read for those who enjoy truly nativist Indian poetry!
