The book is yet another addition to the many volumes of poetry that the author has penned. Working on multifarious themes ranging from Nature, God, love, separation, the mechanics of existence and time, the poet ponders on the issues that confront mankind daily. Contemplative and yet not sermonizing, these poems try to capture the very essence of existence and being. The poems are fresh, sensitive and it is the reader who is ultimately called upon to judge so. They are the “golden harvest” of the poet’s mind and soul.
