About the Author


Ramakanta Das has done his B.A (Honours) in English from Kendrapara College and Masters in English Literature from Ravenshaw College, Cuttack, Odisha. He taught at a college for a few years, before joining as an officer in the Parliament of India. At present he holds the rank of Joint Secretary in RajyaSabha,the Upper House of Indian Parliament. New Delhi, India.

His first collection of poems, Passionate Musing was published in 2005.He has published his second book of poems Canvas and Colours in 2011 and third book of poems Grass Flower in 2012.He published his fourth book of poems Anticipation in 2015.

He is very passionate about poetry as a form of literature. His poetry is intense. He writes about his everyday experiences, but they take on a very aesthetic appeal as he expresses those experiences using highly poetic images and diction. His experience, when put into words, gets transformed into a completely new being with a life of its own. Needless to say that his readers easily identify with the emotions expressed in his poems.

Nature, its varied beauty, is an unending source of inspiration for him. While reading his poems, one can actually experience what he describes—feel the fragrance, hear the sounds, see the beauty as he relates it and relates to it.

He also writes about his innermost feelings. His poems offer a glimpse into the mind of this sensitive man, the way he perceives life as he comes to terms with what it has to offer or through his interaction with people he encounters or through his observation and reflection on things happening around him—the little details which others most times fail to notice.

Presently he is working on another book of poems.
