    As a Christian writer myself, I stand by Dr Celes' choice to expose himself and his faith in beautiful poetry to a world which today, as much as in Jesus' time, despises anything good, clean and pure. If you don't use your 'natural' name, it's
    probably because he has a certain consideration for the majority of us Westerners
    who cannot pronounce lengthy words in other languages. I too am a polyglot, but
    Indian languages did not make up part of my education. There is so much smut
    around that I do not believe anybody can write too many Christian, God praising
    poems. Keep up the good work. I'm praying for you.

    Why on earth would you want to be recognized for how many poems you write? Why not instead seek recognition from others regarding the quality of your output? But alas, you'll not get that from me.

    Dr. A. Celestine Raj Manohar, M.D. is a prolific writer, particularly wonderful Sonnets. He is a Doctor by day and a Poet by night, which is a rare quality of a doctor in the present day world. He is a born poet and poetry is hidden in his blood. That is why he burns mid night oil to come out with his feelings on the website screen over variety of subjects. It is no wonder if his name comes up one day in the history of famous poets and as an excellent sonnet writer.

    About the Poet
    Dr.A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D., PEN-NAME: dr john celes was born on Valentine’s Day of 1957 at Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, INDIA, the eighth child of a well-educated, Roman Catholic family. His father Shri A.T.Antoniswami M.A.L.T., was an excellent school-teacher and a man of great learning, disciplinarian, principles and fortitude. His mother Stella was fairly educated and was able to do both the house-hold chores as well as help the children in their studies.
    Dr john celes received the best English medium education at Carmel Garden Matriculation School, Coimbatore, where he was born and became a Doctor, finishing his M.B., B.S., at Coimbatore Medical College, Coimbatore in 1979 and a Physician by passing M.D.(General Medicine) in 1989 in the same college. His most cherished dream being a Medical Teacher, the poet joined PSGIMS&R, CBE where he worked for nearly seven years. Presently, he is a Professor of Medicine and Chief, Medical Unit II and Physician in IRT Perundurai Medical College and Research Center and Hospital, Perundurai, ERODE-638053, Tamil Nadu, INDIA.
    A versatile person interested in academic and many extra-curricular activities like music, games, elocution, essay-writing and short-story-writing etc, the Poet took to writing English Poetry serendipitously and suddenly since May eleventh,1998, exactly coinciding with the Pokhran II Blasts of India. He started off with his ‘Auto-biography’ in an epic form of heroic couplets first that ran into a few thousand lines(Incomplete) . He loved to write on any topic under the Sun and many genres.
    His maiden anthology of just seventeen good poems was released on Valentine’s Day,2-14-1999 in the Medical College where he worked while a second booklet was released again on 5-11-1999, the First Anniversary of India’s Pokhran II Blasts(India’s Resurgent Day) .Though poetry was only his avocation, he has been writing it rather rapidly and voluminously as he found all the essential factors for goading a Muse to enter a writing spree, continually operative in the place where he worked.
    He has been rendering his poems and even singing some of them to elite audience whenever he could. He wrote the Alma mater Song for the Medical College where he works. Not a function was held that never had the Poetry of dr john celes in it. He even instituted a small Rolling Trophy for English Poetry by Medical Students of the same college. He has participated in a number of Poetry competitions till date and went on-line to submit his many poems at the following websites: www.poemhunter.com; www.poettext.com ; www.ndtv.com poetry corner and also at www.poetry.com. He has published the world’s highest number of Sonnets on-line of the Shakespearean type and hopes to enter the Guinness Book of World Records soon and eventually receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. His Poetry could one day become a ‘Turning point in his career’!
    According to dr john celes: God inspires, The Poet perspires, And the poem transpires.
    The more a poet scribbles, the better the poems out come.
    Poets can make this world a little Heaven!
    Poetry is a gift from God, given to a chosen few souls on earth rarely!
    written by the poet himself as the world does not know him enough as yet but his poetry already has reached colossal and remarkable levels!

Best Poem of Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Sonnet: A Lost Friendship

You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.

Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.

What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?

Dear friend however,...

Sonnet: With God’s Help

‘Come to my aid God, ’ whenever I need,
For, without Thee, my life’s vessel could sink;
With Thee, my Lord, I’ll do great things indeed!
Like how with Thine inspiration, I ink.

Prepare me Lord for life’s challenges,
And make me wary, alert, sensible;
And like sore-throat, soothen’d by lozenges,
Soothen my heart with words from the Bible.
