I'm basically a technocrat, served an international oil Co. and now I'm retd.
Since long I love reading poems of different poets in different genre. I enjoy reading poems and short stories.Truly, very recently I started writing. Because, I found here I can express my feelings & views silently with a freedom. I personally like poems from any genre, but they should have some message at the end.I like expressing my views in simplest words with a smoothness and rhythm.
In my opinion the rhythm itself differentiates a poem from a prose.
A poetic mind's expression with rhythm itself is poetry.

    Amitava, is a philosopher and a poet, whom I love to read. His poems are always thought-provoking, making me think beyond the normal. Amitava has an innocent and pure wisdom that I believe is innate, his ideas are sublime and very noteworthy throughout the world. He is not afraid to mirror injustice, hatred or prejudice - reflecting the wrongs of humanity in this world, he puts it all out there in his poetry very eloquently and succinctly. Constantly, he is touching my soul with his spirituality and keen sense of life. I pray that God will always bless Him abundantly, Amitava is a first class poet in my book. Will continue to read his poetry with great interest and enthusiasm. Amitava is a very endearing poet with a knowledge of the world around him.

    The heart of Amitava a model of love, the brain of Amitava a symbol of morality, the conscience of Amitava a mirror of saints and the poems of Amitava a beauty, a trinity of all the three.

Best Poem of Amitava Sur

A Drop On A Lotus Leaf

A water bead on lotus leaf -
Shimmering with a glow
But up to that time only
As long is on the leaf.

With a little jerk or a shake
It rolls down and ends.

This life is like that only
As a drop on a lotus leaf
Priceless is our human life
But very mortal and short lived.

With a little quiver or a tweak
It shatters and then breaks.
Very short lived and uncertain
Like the dew on the grass tips.

To extract the beauty of life
So long you are alive -

Love all with love and peace -
Love flower bird and ...
