Inspire, comfort, provoke- if an expression doesn’t perform either of these functions it’s not meant to reach out. The poems in this collection live up to this notion.

This book is the first compilation of 116 articles by Vinodji, covering an interesting array of topics. The articles provide light reading, provoke introspection and often a call to action. The practical wisdom, refreshing perspectives and uplifting ideas, makes the content enriching and serves as a handy reference to tackle challenges of life.

Tamanna-e-Sahar is a journey the poet sets out on through his inner-most thoughts, travelling from hope to despair and revelry. The verses cover love in all its forms, hues, shades and colors. It celebrates this beautiful feeling in one’s life, inherent from days of yore—the joy of togetherness, anguish and pain; separation and desertion.

The soulful sojourn finally wanders into the patriotism for one’s motherland. Though laced with forlornness, Tamanna-e-Sahar ref...
