Eclectic, Insightful & Thought-provoking
|by Mahadev Desai|
Solitude and Other Poems ....
Poet Rajender Krishan’s debut anthology of 60 eclectic, insightful and thought-provoking poems has garnered profuse praise from readers and critics alike. The lyrical poems exhibit a range of genre and a striking breadth of subject matter, composed with rhythmic language and realism.
Rajender is a humanist, philosopher and mystic, lover of literature, tradition and religion which is amply reflected in his nuanced poems with nuggets of wisdom. Through his poems, he introspects about life, death, rebirth, creation, preservation and regeneration and also meaning of life. He reflects on the reason for a feeling of emptiness and existential angst experienced by many. He stresses the immense value of silence and solitude which helps in ‘self-discovery’ and in experiencing a blissful state of mind.
Noted poet, novelist, short story writer and critic P.C.K. Prem lauds the poet who believes that ‘Life is a great teacher. The joy is in living. Life itself is an expression. It is the only constant that’s forever changing.’
