< b> Autobiography of an Award Winning Poet< /b>

I wanted a medal, and so I went
to the awarding committee vice president
and showed him all my poems and asked:
'Would you consider me for an award? '

'Your poems are all so simple and straight -
with no sign of style or high intellect;
even a schoolboy can plain understand ...

A Woman's Scent
That night when my mother
took me to her breasts
I knew woman had a scent
quite different from man's...
Give Me That Promotion, Sir!
How are you, sir?

I was just passing by,
thought I might as well drop in
I, She And The Sea
Sombre though we were we knew -
For the hearts beneath our skins did throb,
As the surf surged up the sun swept shore
And we lay in repose in gold sands galore -
Haiku On Soul
Soul to the Body: -
'So how are you, buddy? '
'Not dead yet...'
A Prayer To God
        Hails to thee, Lord!

In your praise we offered a thousand oblations
broke a hundred coconuts, and offered prayers

Out of the so many poems I read in this column this was a peculiar one having the exactness and truth of events that discourages a new born poet and the real confrontation he meets. No more comments about the poem since these are seems to be events.

I had a chance to meet Dr. Tapan Kumar Pradan at my house and had a long and interesting chat with him! When met face to face, I could see a different side of his personality! Dr. Tapan is so sensitive to the problems of the down trodden and has cent percent commitment to his profession, who has travelled extensively and has an enormous fund of experience to his credit. In the midst of his onerous responsibilities as an executive of the Reserve Bank, he finds time to engage in umpteen social activities like planting trees, helping farmers, writing poems, socializing and so on... Warm and humane... let him thrive as a poet of great excellence and recognition!

I like this best sir poet: 'What's an award to do with a darned critic? ' I asked in rage, but his answer was as chic: 'Your poems are sophisticated, not easy to chew - only a critic can lucidate your point of view! ' You are making a good point here. but then again, you are on top now and can have your audience.

I have had the great pleasure of coming into contact with Dr. Pradhan and his great works. He is a gifted writer and is very well known for his observations and critique. He has guided me in areas of literature that was unknown to me and assisted me in testing the unknown waters of the poetry world. His style of writing and delivery of poetry is very unique in many ways. His use of many variations and styles of poetry is very admirable. A well known and well rounded Poet he is.

A very gifted poet who is rather unknown in the literary world. I stumbled upon Pradhan's works quite accidentally. Decided to write his biography, which is quite interesting. The wide range of poetic styles is quite breath taking. Writing with a flowing diction, with rhythm, humour, sarcasm, symbols and metaphors, Pradhan is equally at ease with lyrics and free verse.

Dr Tapan is good at romantic love poems. But surprisingly he got all his awards for the philosophical and psychological type poems. Two Women and I, She and She are more popular. But I like the shorter ones like Nachiketa, Now is Time, Enchantress and Epiphany etc. Wind in Afternoon is another classic. Pradhan's Kalahandi poem may also be uploaded in PH.
