The journey of life, while passing through different phases and milestones, reminds us of a bunch of colours. All of them offer certain memories to cherish forever. They arouse numerous feelings and emotions, manifested in various forms of expressions which may be carried over to the following pages of life in a covered shell. ‘Wings of Western Ghats’ is a gift to the readers; a fascinating voyage through nostalgic feelings and everlasting memories, touching the heart from very close distances. Human life is always a mix of emotions which the poet attempts to trace and sketch in the context of dreams and grim realities. Most of the poems here draw the conflicting situations, along the hedgerows of natural phenomena, against the backdrop of dreams and realities amidst nostalgic vibes. Interestingly, the poems leave an element of thought with readers to brood over, creating enduring marks on heart’s walls. Also the humour, hidden among the words, makes reading a wonderful experience. So read through the poems as cheerful as a lark and listen to your heart’s voice!
