When I read Nanda’s poems I travel to my youthful days. My dreams take a stroll with me. I get reminded of reading the poems of renowned lyricist Mr. Vairamuthu’s during my college days, sitting under the shade of a mango tree. Twelve years have passed by since I read the Nanda’s first poem. When I heard from him that this is his first collection to be printed I was surprised.
