    His poems are out of this world! His poems are mostly abstract in nature. He uses a lot of rhyming couplets; sadly I have not read any of his articles or books. My fault! ! ! On this very page is one of his best poems: All You Who Sleep Tonight. Merely, two verses, which brings out his in-depth thought processes! ! ! !

Best Poem of Vikram Seth

All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -

Know that you aren't alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.
