    most diligent and versatile poet of the century. I not only admire his poems, i feel the love the poet inside as well.
    Wish I could just meet him once. But the desire to desire the desired is usually undesirable

    I'm desperately waiting to see that Vikram Seth takes part in Poem Hunter at least to teach something about poetry writing to me. I'm truly stirred by his works.

Best Poem of Vikram Seth

All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -

Know that you aren't alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

Read the full of All You Who Sleep Tonight


To make love with a stranger is the best.
There is no riddle and there is no test. --

To lie and love, not aching to make sense
Of this night in the mesh of reference.

To touch, unclaimed by fear of imminent day,
And understand, as only strangers may.

[Hata Bildir]
