A book which offers deep insights.

The poet Gopal Lahiri uses all the elements of language to create refreshing imagery in this book. To quote his own words ‘the alphabets rustle’ and resonate. In the poem City Skins, we have ‘woodpeckers write the evening lyrics’. In the section ‘Haibun’ the poet’s h fine control over his craft is on display.
