    You out the hit the nail with the right hammer. Here is something that was always evident and hazy in the background and you have voiced words to it. (Report) Reply

    So well written, so much sense and light bit of humour in the verses. Great write Tapan.
    Convinces me that a good poet must never crave for awards and recognition.
    He/she should just keep penning verses, creating beautiful expressions to thoughts.
    Like stunning sunrises, sunsets, like breathtaking trees that bloom in spring - who awards them? (Report) Reply

    awards are the recognition to be remembered for a while or longer..But many people have lived in the minds of people beyond their time, as their works have had the values...the troublesome life of a writer is well expressed here, if we consider all these advices are from the supervisor, who guide the budding writer..

    An excellent write from top to bottom. To have to go through so many
    twists just to receive the honor of being an award winning poet. Too
    many barrels to jump over. Just be yourself. Enjoyed the read. (Report) Reply
