About the Book
Subodh Sarkar's poems shimmer with an audacity of simplicity, openness and lucidity which mark his poetic idioms subtle, specific and razor-sharp where the poetic corpus retains as an inviting discourse. Love is a companion of the poetic soul. The poet wants to sign in the 'peace accord' of minds. Subodh Sarkar allows his poetry to speak for an artist's responsibility towards life, contexts and manners of the time. These poems bring out the poet's social, historical, political and economic dimensions to the reading world. He celebrates things happening around him every day; humbled by time's magic hands. This is a selection from the poems he has written over the last four decades.
