Every moment that passes is not coming back.Yes, there might be moments in future, like the one you just experienced. But it's not going to be the same again.The one that was, was one like itself. It cannot be replaced. It's gone... Long gone... Dissolved in this crazy tasting, highly intoxicating drink of life. In an attempt to capture these bits and pieces that keep dissolving to give their distinct flavors to this colorful cocktail, I end up scribbling on my pad. This book is a bouquet of such moments that started with my mindless scribbling and ended up in verses. Sweet, Bitter, Sour, Sublime... Each piece has a taste of its own.

Simple gestures seem philosophical, and add to it, simple language and subtle metaphors. Variety of thought and transformation of ordinary into extraordinary. These are not the only things this book of poems is about. It's about life, every face of it, good and bad, tough and easy. A heap of praise can't do justice to the book. Read it for yourself. You'll enjoy every word of it.
Editing is thoroughly professional, that is such a rare thing in Indian publishing industry. FSP deserves a word of appreciation for that. (Y)
Coming to the technicalities of the writing, the poems are easy and short. The main style followed in majority of the poems, is free verse. ‘She goes’, ‘Coffee’ and ‘Wild child’ are three poems that I could actually relate with. Coffee is something that is an inevitable part of majority of the people. The poet has brought out the intricate details of the feelings and emotions felt while savoring the aroma of this drink. ’She goes’ portrays the raw frenzied emotions of someone who is waiting desperately. And last but not the least, ‘WildChild’ is a showcase of free will and dreams. However, some of the poems are more like stories, summarized in one-liners and put as poems. Secondly, the typesetting and the font used is not apt. The standard Arial or Bookman Antiqua style would have been better.
Overall, a light read and enjoyable work of literature!
Best wishes to the poet!
My View :-
This book is a rainbow of colourful poems with a sprinkle of stripped emotions & crafted imaginations.
These poems are like "ice-creams", different in colour & taste but have their personalised flavour to it. With this book i stroll down memory lane reviving those carefree childhood & crazy teenage days where full of temptations ,ramblings and longings.
Glimpse of few ones :-
Idle Mornings :- From the dream of being together to the bitter-sweet reality, from those hypnotic words to the natural symphony..this was a magnetic read.
Temptations :- From the childish cravings to the desperate longings , From the passionate love to the intoxicating memories ,From the delicious cakes to the sweet Alphonso.. this was an aromatic read.
Love,Life & A Little Nostalgia :- From the short but impactful poems to the long flat poems, from those unsaid words to that nostalgic drives, from those crazy crushes to the eternal love definitions... This was a fair read.
Lost Moments :- From those gazing at clouds or shadow moments to those focussed views , from those random thoughts to those worried thoughts, from those haunting songs to those crazy remote fights,from those unsaid words to those unread letters.. This was a sentimental read.
Flirting with Death :- From perfect poetic flavour to the sensible (life-death) convo, from the "hidden tears" to the questionable existence , from the caged person to the freelancer..this was a hysterical read.
Wow and Oops Of The Book :-
⭐️ Language & Content :- The language was simple & lucid , some poems were bang on perfect with an apt poetic flair, impactful social message, whereas some poems were flatly long, non-connecting and irrelevant
⭐️⭐️ Better & Could Be Better :- The Coffee, Love is beyond all reasons, A Girl Looking down at the city, The lane, Embroidery The Remote ,A Fleeting life ...were crafted with melodious rhythms and emotions whereas, Alphonso , Someday, Stories, Song, Sometimes, Choked , Walk were simply off track .
Rating :- 3.25/5
