About the Author
"Uma Sudhindra grew up in an army environment. After a decade-and-half of corporate life, she became an entrepreneur and has remained one. She loves books, music, travel & the Armed Forces. Her entrepreneurial venture Go Magic Trails reflects her passion for travel and experiencing the new & unique.She's co-founded I'm Every Woman, an NGO for women empowerment. Their flagship initiative, DURGA India, has worked tirelessly with communities, corporates & government to create safer spaces for women & children. Binod Kumar Panda is the classic mix of left-brain, right-brain. Gregarious and charming, he's an engineer and MBA with a hugely successful corporate, entrepreneurial and consulting career. His school and college years though were spent in the company of solitude and like-minded friends that resulted in thought provoking poetry. Trupti Kalamdani is a mechanical engineer by profession who investigates stresses developed on an aircraft body at work; while at home, releases her stress by penning down a few lines. Her tryst with poetry started during her school days, when she expressed her undying love for cricket in the form of a poem. Over the years, her limericks have grown into full bodied verses. A closet poet for years, she is finally out and exploring different platforms to share her work. Her poems have been published in literary journals like efiction India, Taj Mahal Review and Coffee Shop Poems. She is also a regular performer at ""Let Poetry Be"" events at Atta Galatta. Dr. Shruti Arabatti comes with a mature head over drooping arms and a mind ticking faster than an exploding bomb. Like her namesake, she is an orchestrated person living in a discordant cadence. She manages to hit all the right notes amidst all the gobbledygook yelping by her adorable preschooler. Saurin Desai's first love led to a roaring affair that's ongoing now since nearly 30 years. At the innocent age of 8 he met a comic book that whacked him on the head (pun intended) and he fell heels-over-head, literally (pun not intended). But being commitment-phobic, he had a couple of dalliances: with engineering, jobs & businesses, before succumbing to the seduction of the writer's life and giving up everything to become lazier than he ever was.

A human mind is always preoccupied with various and numerous thoughts. From man to woman, boy to girl, minor to stripling every humankind is indulged with obsession, some people refrain but some they cant and become obsessed.
Poems in the garner have a high and rich vocabulary, themes of the poem are multifarious. Poetry is something that has a power to control the mind, I was enjoying reading these poems on various topics, the book is full of awestruck and awesome pieces of poems of poets. Some of my personal favorite from this pile is Binod Panda’s collection every poem has a story behind even years are mentioned, Life: With A smile amazing, Two to Tango, Who Am I, Send Me, Flute, The Light Princess, and In A Lap Of Death are few titles touched my soul.
Title and cover both didn’t make a place in my heart, but yes poems have left the print in my heart!
Highly recommended to all poetry lovers!
Each poet have their own theme where they express their emotions through the caricature of words. Even though the themes vary from one poet to another, overall, the book caters to the theme solitude and obsessions.
This book would be good for beginner readers who are venturing into the genre of poetry and if you have a penchant for short poems with easy language, then of course you would love it.
Uma Sudhindra is an Idealist, and like Wordsworth, is inspired by Nature. Her poem " A Soldier's Message" is poignant and reminds me of Rupert Brooke.
Saurin Desai is the Platonic enquirer and has found some answers as reflected in "Flute". I also liked the existential dilemma in his sparse-but-loaded "Cattle to the Slaughter."
Binod Panda is a Stoic poet who captures the Spartan essence without frills and strives for maximum bang per word. A balanced combination of right brain-left brain. My pick of Binod's work is "Reflections", a poem that recognizes that life is but a game of shadows and reflections. A throwback to Plato's 'Analogy of the Cave'.
Trupti Kalamdani is a Sophist and the opposite of Binod; she is an expressive fountainhead of words. I liked her juxtaposition of Past, Present and Future in "Yours Truly" and the womanhood in "Fiddler of the Womb".
Finally Shruti Arabatti 's is the Eternal Seeker whose grand obsession is Self-Realization and she brings this out evocatively in "The Final Destination" and "All that Matters".
Kudos for the poetry and thank you for sharing it. Keep the poems flowing!
Also also, I loved the cover of the book. It’s AWESOME
Overall, this book is a wonderful creation, the depth of the poems, the way it is described, simple language is amazing. Love Poetry? Go for It?
