Crossing the Shoreline, a fresh collection of poems by one of our finest contemporary poets Gopal Lahiri reads like embarking on a new voyage to an unknown landscape where the inner self is reborn once again.

Forgive Reality

Author: Kamal

“Poetry is not to change the reality, let alone forgive! When I read such a collection of poems by a poet, who happens to be a Chartered Accountant by calling, I was driven into a strange cogitation: Can reality be forgiven? With that thought at the back of my mind, I went reading the poems by Kamal and comprehended a man from financial realm making foray into the world of imagination, in which reality is either a chimera or just a presence, to be defined by images and metaphors. Ah yes, naturally, he has to ask us to ‘Forgive Reality’ which is harsh and discordant compared to the world of POETRY! The sketches popping up sometimes between poems, spoke volumes of his ethereal search of finesse in this camouflaged projection of reality in a world, which again may not be real! No wonder, Eliot dreamt of an “Unreal City”! The way he unfolds his imagination, peeps into the alleys of ‘reality’, juggles with the thoughts to be expressed poetically, leaves much room for readers to expect mellowed creativity from him in future.” – Dr Ketaki Datta.

Forgive Reality, can we?

How do you forgive reality? It was the title to this collection of poems which intrigued me the most when I picked up a copy.

What a heart warming collection it is, the language is simple but the core message in each poem touches a different string making us wonder and introspect too.

I could relate to each poem in my own way through my own journey and I’m sure each reader feels the same.

Ability to forgive the reality

Forgive reality is a true picture of one’s life, and every one doesn’t have the ability to forgive and let go things… So it’s a must read book… Specially the youth, who can relate each poem to their daily life.
