to the awarding committee vice president

'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 ...

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.

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!

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.
