About the Book


“You write so honestly, sincerely, about the subjects that touch you, that I cannot hide the admiration that presses on me at times when I am with your poems.”

—Jayanta Mahapatra


“You write very well.”

 –Keki N. Daruwalla


“Mohankumar is the quintessential poet of the commonplace. His is a world of nostalgia… There is a desire to go back to pristine nature and the poems abound in pictures of village, garden, monsoon breeze, midnight moon, soft blue haze of snow and birds.”

— J.P. Das


“His youthfulness accounts for the freshness of his thought in some of his poems, but his maturity comes out in the crafting of the best of them: the choice of words, the control over the emotion, the avoidance of unnecessary embellishments, etc.”

—Dr. Ayyappa Paniker


“I like both his cynicism and his subtle sense of humour, the mask behind the mask.”

 –Kamala Suraiya’
