My book begins when the dust on the streets has settled, and those who have lost something in one way or the other have come to terms with what they are left with, hope and trust! Sensitivity is subjective. What moves others may be deadened to me. What is musical to me maybe a disturbance to others. Impassivity is nothing but denial. If it is pulsating, it is painful, and it is neigh impossible to grade it on a standardized scale, and it is that profound perceive which touches the live cord tenderly sometimes, scratching it to bleed. ‘The bent of mind’ is the extreme of that modality. It is not about me; it is about us! It may smack of Indianness, but the appeal is universal. It is the most natural and candid expression of emotions that become louder in ‘Dirty linen’...! There is nothing unique about this book; it is my observations, obsessions, and occurrences dusted off the waste bin, receptive, but restive; therefore, it should be dealt with as such. Against the grain, I am exposed...! The opening poem ‘Why don’t I move from/into?’ is the gist of the book and, in a way essence of life in general. Simple but captivating ‘Train’, ‘The Rain’, ‘The Spring’ is an attempt to freeze the moments as they do unfold! These and others like, Heaven, The woman, Poetry, The dream, The Godfather, The Fear, The Freedom, are few from the long list of freestyle but contemplative compositions! ‘Again, the sun shines upon my grave Again, the plaque lit up “hard to erase!”Again, my dust collects into a shape Again, I rise into a mortal of desires and taste Again,......!’ ‘Boulevard’, the moments of dalliance with the Nature when the beleaguered Vital yacht finds it difficult to sail on is the only realization of the fact that there is no place as reassuring and as relaxing as the lap of mother, in matter or metaphor! ‘Quotes’ are another mode of facing the facts head-on. They are heartfelt and often hard-hitting, and philosophically pragmatic! The book was long due to see the light of day. Although, for the most part, it was written 25 to 30 years ago; therefore, it should be looked at in that way, but its relevance is timeless as it revolves around life and its unit, the human being! A book speaks for itself, and this one, the reader will find irresistible to listen to time and again simply because of its musing and musical makeup. A true companion, indeed!
