This book is the first collection of poems, written over a period of maybe twenty-five years. It is a collage of ideas, thoughts and satirical articles about love and vagaries of life! It brings out many reflections, on the ups and downs of life and the emotions of love, in the form of verse and short articles, which makes for easy reading. It almost covers a whole gamut of emotions and anyone will find a poem for every mood and moment. Tongue-in-cheek in quite a few places, it seeks to bring out the humor in some of life’s nondescript situations. Combined with a social message in some of the works, the book is a wholesome package for enjoyable reading!
