If you are lucky enough to encounter them in a smog!They entice, enrapture and make you admire the little diamonds glittering on the grass on an early winter dawn in a polluted city, in a corner plot, still undeveloped; or, in a garden still un-trodden by careless human feet intent for their morning jog.”Dr.Jaydeep Sarangi(a noted bilingual poet and academic) in his review wrote “There is an easy flow that embraces Santanu’s poems. When we read them they invite us  to read again and again: “the expression of the imagination” .His poetic voice delves into the question of identity, Indian, Bengali and as a poet only to transcend limits and borders  and become, above all, human.
