Rajat Lal's Transient Reflections Impressions Permanent : Poems, Places and Paradigms
Paradigms that ask us where we go. From the randomness of desolate sands to the empty sky beyond the mountains' cusp? A becalmed mind, slowly getting lost in delusion or turning the corner towards freedom?
Reflections on places riding on waves of poetry. Impressions taking form over Time
and space, into permanence.
Linking twenty-three cities and places across three continents, this book brings together the emotions a poem evokes, the thousand words a picture speaks, the contemplations a piece of prose induces. Towards a shared template and a Personal
intent for our Society
Through the Eyes
of someone who has been a student, a professional, a traveller, a layman. Striving to be a citizen. Aren't we all?
