The author is sensitive and has what is called a seaman’s eye. He quickly notices things which are odd and do not conform to the regular patterns. Being a naval officer he had the chance to see the world and notice several things different from normal. Secondly, he seemed to have spent quite some time in Mumbai the sprawling city that never sleeps and provides a wide mosaic of things in myriad colors. He took note of these things and events and using his rich vocabulary molded his blank verses. I liked most of his poems, but “Word play” and “The glass bangles” fascinated me immensely. In ‘word play’ one can imagine playing scrabble with his daughter and watching the progress of the young girl to beat her dad.
I am happy to note the author had worked with me four decades earlier.
