|by Ashok Kumar|
Dr. Bijender Singh is a bilingual author who writes in English and Hindi apart from some lyrical poems in Haryanvi - a dialect of Haryana. He is an English lecturer having a poetic heart. He is the editor of an international refereed multidisciplinary e-journal (expressionjournal.com). He has written one voluminous literary book, two poetry books and has ten edited anthologies to his credit.
Bijender Singh has penned down some philosophical views through his poetry. He has written how to live a successful, peaceful and satisfactory life. “Half of My Life”, “Return Values”, “Rules of Life”, “Dance and Dancers”, “Life is Like a Train”, “Misunderstandings” and “Teenager’s Life” etc. poems deal with one or the other issues of life. He writes in the poem “Money is Honey”:
Love, motivation, and relationships also occur as dominant themes in his poetry. He is a critic of the follies and evils of the society and criticizes some issues of the society. He emerges as a critic in the poems “Strange World”, “Double Faces”, “Words on Garments” and “A City Dog”. He has criticized on the garments of those boys, girls and people who purchase clothes with some such words printed on them which attract others immediately but the beholders imbibe those words with an eye of contempt. He criticizes how some uneducated people or even educated youngsters wear clothes with the objectionable words such as “Playboy” even not knowing the real meanings of the words whose they become the mobile carrier in ignorance or take it a matter of pride. He points his fingers at the parents also when they ignore such things knowing everything. Here is another example:
As a whole, it can be asserted that Bijender Singh’s Confusing Poetry is a must read poetry book for all the poetry lovers. Its language is somewhere very easy to follow but it becomes a bit difficult to get understood the layered meanings of few poems due to abstruse themes hidden behind the words. In short poems, he takes us towards the other side of the meanings of those poems. He has written his this book for all keeping in view the less educated stratum and the well-educated people. Thus, all should read this book and must enjoy the amalgam of flight of reality and imagination in his book. He has carved the words of his poetry very decorously.
