Words can create magic and I want to get lost in them for some part of each day.

Portrait of Vikram Seth.

A whiff of yearning and romance
Loss,loneliness - memories that linger
Vikram's magical pen is like no man's
Lyrical sonnets drip off his fingers...
Gentle watercolours of words
leading - even the philistines towards
A heart more appreciative
of subtle phrases which hold one captive
to his stories of everyday profoundness.
Shining the light on what we see and know
but still remains unsaid ; till a Vincent Van -Gogh
Puts it on a canvas with astounding finesse.
What wit and heart,what turn of phrase!
What Joy to behold such cleverness with such Grace !!
