Manjal Veethigal

Author Name: V. K. Ramakrishnon | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

This collection of poetry, Manjal Veethigal, is a treat to nature lovers.

The poems describe elements of nature in all their abundance from flowers and clouds, to singing cuckoos and dancing peacocks.

The poet draws several striking comparisons–between the celestial bodies and a girl adorned in her ornaments; the swaying of the coconut leaf and a tied elephant.

Poems such as Neelavanam (Blue Sky) are highly philosophical.

The poetry delves into the subjects of love, unexpressed love, family, optimism, social sense, and perseverance in handling difficult situations.
