Description
About the Book

Endless Adornment depicts the simple joys of village life, nature and love in its various aspects. The poems celebrate different festivals observed in villages with the drawing of attractive jhoti and chita designs on walls and floors, preparation of different pithas offered to gods and goddesses and the joy of playing different games in orchards, river banks and moonlit nights. The poet depicts the lovely picture of different seasons at villages as well. He is nostalgic about all these joys of village life.

A poignant theme of love runs like a thread in most of the poems. The poet is nostalgic about his lost love whose memory leaps up his heart, and he eternally waits for her. He is never tired of wishing her well-being. The poet is nostalgic about his parents and kinsmen as well. Using a highly metaphoric and philosophic language the poet looks inward and reflects on love, relationship, man's loneliness, hypocrisy, life, its irrevocable and inexorable journey and ultimate goal. In most of the poems, he moves from depiction of particular thing or person to philosophical reflections. Doubtless these poems are an emotional and intellectual feast for readers.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
