Author:Yuyutsu RD Sharma
Size:132 x 206 mm
This book is poetry where pastoral elegy becomes fused with magic realism, where earthly common sense mysticism becomes interlaced with a lush sexuality. This book is the electrifying collection set in Nepalese village on a forgotten trade route in the Mahabharata range and in a small Rajasthan village. This collection conceives the poets needle sharp images and his preoccupation with the Himalayan people and the landscape that in the later phase snowballs into a major motif. The author here celebrates ambition of the furnished querns to possess silos of plenty. The author brings to the Indian readers a distinct flavor of the Nepalese landscape and culture, in a sequence of poems that pulsate with needle sharp images. Equally sensitive is his language that, scrupulously avoids stilted diction words or phrases. His writings are so densely majestic that he holds readers attention all the way through. This book is a must read.
