What Song Unsung O My Daughter Memories of a Life

Author Name: Kr. Fateh Singh Jasol | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

“A japa mala of an ordinary life, 108 beads woven around a thread of thoughtful awareness of the creator and all creatures  great and small”  

    This is the third, enlarged, edition of a collection of poems celebrating epiphanic moments that illumined the author’s life. Readers have greatly liked the previous editions for their simple, straightforward, giving impulse to share the ordinary day to day things that made up the kaleidoscope of an obviously much cherished life journey, for its sensitive sublimation of an individual experience to a more universally shared humanity. 

The collection stands out for its portrayal of nature and human relations and the close bonds between nature and man, resting on a perceptible substratum of sensitive thoughtfulness and spirituality.
