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 experiences, when put in words, get transformed into a completely new being with a life of its own: needless to say, his readers easily identify themselves with the emotions expressed.
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 people normally fail to notice.
Presently he is working on another book of poems.
