Me thinks

I was 17 when my first poem was published in an international anthology and since then one thing that has always haunted me is the need to have more poetry enthusiasts in Indian literary world as well.
This book seemed more like an answer to my prayers as I turned page after page to read some mind blowing poems. And ofcourse the beauty is more when you see so many of your friends there.

I loved the way each and every author has tried to weave magic through their words. The only disappointment was the different fonts used on each page which made it a not-so-good read.

Over all the quality of poems supersedes everything else giving you a wonderful time as you drown yourself in those poetic musings.
