The poetry of Manas Bakshi is grounded in trenchant explorations, treatises of contemplation and introspection, tribulations of modern life i.e. moral degradation, cultural decay, social delinquency and existential disorder and a gripping portrayal of grievous concerns, injustices and unethical practices. At other end, he takes the readers from the world of aesthetics to the world of metaphysics. He is both optimistic and pessimistic and a close scrutiny of his poetry would give the readers a gentle touch of humanism and pragmatism too. A poet of profound wisdom, Bakshi is at times philosophical, and at others, highly intellectual and deeply moving. Social reverberations dominate his poetry. He is highly knowledgeable and digs at the evils of the world. An objective presenter, he voices for the restoration of lost values, glory and image, prestige and honor, and rightful position and a dignified and decent life for the citizens across the globe. This is where he excels as a poet. Objectivity and detachment are the hall marks of his poetry. To conclude, the editor is of the belief that his poetry is fit enough to undertake research by the scholars in the universities.
