Onkar Nath Gupta As A Poet - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Onkar Nath Gupta
Who was born on the 20th of July,1941
At Varanasi
Did his M.A. in English from Benaras Hindu Univ.
In 1964
To join Shri Shivaji College, Akot, Akola
In Maharashtra
And retired in 2001.

Now a poet with collections of poems,
Namely, Lilacs in Lab in 2001, Mosaic of Love And Legends in 2005,
Prism of Poetry in 2011, Spilled Feelings in 2014
Onkar Nath fuses in wit, humour and satire
With myth and mythology,
Indian and Hindu
To entertain and regale us.

Spilled Feelings is a very good work,
A masterpiece of his,
The magnum opus of Gupta
Which he has been honing in
For quite a long time
With his social, political and economic
Thoughts and ideas.

A poet sympathetically with
Eklavya and Karna,
He tells the tales of moral crisis, spiritual malaise,
Economic exploitation, social injustice
And hollow mentality of ours,
Eating at the roots of life,
Leaving no scope for amelioration.

History, myth and satire,
Fact, fiction and emotion,
Wit and humour
Are the chief properties of the poet,
Beaming with,
Regaling us with his sparkling wit.
