Any lover of art forms and expressions would admit the fact that art gives a meaning to life itself, by giving succour from all cares and channelizing our wild imaginings towards something new and beautiful. Life itself is a palimpsest, a patchwork of art where myriad emotions, experiences, memories are constantly being inscribed, erased and rewritten. Literary endeavour or for that matter, poetry is one of the most effective medium to capture this flux. This book is an attempt by the author to pen down variegated manifestations of life, ranging from personal to the social. It is a way of capturing emotions, giving them an exquisite form and at the same time making room for newer expressions. This collection includes poems written down at various points of time so that the work includes both mature and callow forms. This is, in fact, poetry in the making, showing a gradual evolution of style and thought of the poet.
