Your poems are truly magical and uplifting to read. You write about a lot of interesting topics and your poems bring a vivid image to the forefront. I also notice your economy of words and the fact that most poems are less than 50 words. Amazing that you say so much with so little. Hallmark of a great poet

As someone who dabbled in poetry in high school, I am humbled by the depth and breadth of Govind's collection of poems. From the topical and light, to the acute and profound, from the meditative and spiritual to the beautiful and sublime, yet in all cases lyrical and perceptive. Bravo - and I hope you long continue along this path of reflection and creative construction.

It's good to see that a highly motivated young activist and scholar is also trying to achieve something in the realm of poetry. Poetry needs youths who aspire to great undertakings, just as it needs their passion to woo the haughtiest of hearts. However, it also needs the mindset of a humble craftsman who potters in a workshop and forages for fresh materials. Heroic aspiration can make a poem top heavy, unless a groundwork of reflection has been laid. It's admirable to see a young person venture into this arena where rewards are intrinsic and achievements are hard to measure.

Saw, heard your Durga Kural. I am old, when a boy I recited a prayer to Savitr every morning. Seven decades ago. PH gave me a few centimeters. 'Deergaayushman bhava'. A.Madhavan

hi Govind - i just discovered your lovely Senryu Yantra. I am a sculptor in Australia and my latest series of works relate to yantra. I am researching about this to make little 'medicine bags' which relate to each of the 7 artworks. I am hoping you will be happy for me to include your poem Yantra in those bundles. They will be closed and for the buyers to open only but I am happy to reference you elsewhere publicly also. Please let me know. My show is in 1 month but publicity happening now. If you wish i can email you an inage of the works - in the meantime www.shonawilson.com is my website - namaste!
