Mosaic of Love And Legends By Onkar Nath Gupta

Onkar Nath Gupta is a poet of his type
As his poetry is a blend of
Myth, wit and humour,
Indian, local, regional and classical.

Mosaic of Love And Legends,
The second volume of his
Which appears in 2005
Is a master stroke in local humour.

Taming A Tigress, Disengagement,
Learning In New Context, A Dialogue,
Your Grace, Gouri Pujan, Woman Is A River In Spate,
Anatomy of An Officer, Books, Learning Complexes, etc. the poems.

Nag-Puja, Swayamvara, Jauhar and Sati,
The poems of a verve,
As he relates them
In a historic-mythical context.

Onkar is a very good poet,
Full of myth, history and realism,
Taking the things under his purview,
A master craftsman.

As a poet, he is experimental
As he keeps fusing in
Folklore and fiction,
Classical stuff with local things.

Drawing from our household things,
Sometimes pastoral,
Sometimes neo-classical and traditional,
His is ornate and flowery style.

Poem of the Day

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
