R. P. Ghosh's richly varied life experiences are the inspiration for this multi-themed collection of poems. Drawing on his early childhood challenges as a refugee and subsequent success in professional-services as well as the arts, the author passionately describes and deftly combines his philosophies on ‘power-crazy' political forces and their effect on so many, the meaning of life, the reality of ancient religions in our modern world and his love and respect for the forces of nature, so enchantingly interwoven into his verses. His creative self-assessment of situations in his life in other countries, and with different cultures, is both fascinating and thought-provoking and the reader can look forward to exploring new ways of thinking.
