is a young voice, and it throbs with the ancient urgencies of youth. This
finely chiseled collection of poems presents the reader with hymns of love and
paeans to purity; you will find explorations of lonely roads and excavations of
nothingness. There are also more maverick probes into vagrancy and empty
pockets. In these lines of poetry, Bharat makes lives meet, entangle and depart;
destinies to encounter deaths, debts; emotions and attachments to chase one
another…In other words, these poems shape the wor(l)d in the lambent planes of
the poet’s imagination. Despite its brimful youth, this poetic voice is also
measured, unhurried, possessed by the formidable knowledge that “Every little
distance [is] a tribute to fears and sins…” Sharmila Sreekumar, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, IIT BOMBAY “This amazing collection of Bharath's poems is a poetic and
philosophical odyssey into the realms of human sensitivities of painful
sufferings, passionate longings and fragile relationships. His poems sound to
me more of a common man's rendering of the real and fantasy in poetic verses.
You can connect with his thoughts and feelings, if you have felt or known the
joy and pain of a common man"ASSOCIATE
