Firstly, I bow before you O Great Messenger of Love and Peace! I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through the title of your poems and was highly impressed. That your pen has been able to throw light on the profound greatness of such array of luminaries of humanity and spirituality is really appreciable. In course of time I will take time to read more of them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that I have pasted here a collection of my poems on the well known social worker late Baba Amte. I think you would be interested in reading more about him. I would like you to kindly go through some of them at your convenience, give your valuable comments and help me spread his universal message of harmony between man and man and between man and nature.

Rajaram Ramachandran is a master of the art of simplicity. His work is appealing to young and old alike. I believe he is one of India's treasures. His poems and translations
deserve much recognition. I admire and respect his noble attempt to build enduring'
creative bridges between the Eastern and Western worlds.
I have read some of his books. It's really great the way he writes and any one, even one like me who is not from the world of the poetry writers, can understand and feel the feeling conveyed by his simple writing style. His works are simply great. I am proud to know him personally. I would pray for his long life so that he can contribute more for the benifit of the future gens and I sincerely wish that his efforts are really appreciated by all who can understand by any means. Appreciation is one of the very big motivating factor, for any one in any area, to put in some extra efforts to try to scale the heights, like getting some extra Oxygen.. Love you Uncle! .
Today, I have understood what poetry is!
Today, I have read (Sir) Rajaram Ramachandran!
Off the many gems in your poem-bank -
Today, I chanced to view a couple of your odes.
The talent is truly amazing. Your writings are truly mesmerizing. They are educative to the students of the language and they are effective for the causes of the society. Whatever I may write here - though I would like to write a lot - however much I write........ It shall not be enough for the praise of your artistry. You deserve more than anything written here...... I salute you!
Rajaram Ramachandran writes poems with simple words and shorter lines, finishing with a message at the end of each poem. His poetry appeals to even the students from the middle school. He tells stories to children thro' his poetries. His poems talk about variety of subjects like ethics, philosophy, nature, love, jokes, life history of prominent people, etc. He breaks sentences in such a way that one can easily capture the idea behind each and every stanza, what he wants to say to the people of all walks of life. His 'Ramayana' in particular is a master piece, which every reader would admire for its simplicity and meaningful. His compilation of 'A Boquet of Oriental Poems' contains several Eastern thoughts and practices, mainly meant for the Western world to know more about the Indians way of life. He is one of the modern poets, whose prose poems have reached the nook and corners of the poetry world. Wish him all the success he richly deserves in this field.
