Book Review - An Ode to Shimla

Image
Book: An Ode to Shimla
Author: Sanjeev Bansal
Publisher: Leadstart Publishing Pvt Ltd
Purchase Link: Amazon

Blurb:
Sanjeev Bansal's exquisite poems are epistles to the past, reflections upon the future and heartbreaking meditations upon the metaphysics of daily transcendence. One of the most subtly imaginative poets, Bansal bravely transcribes his love for the hilly terrains of Shimla into the charged intersections of love and rejection, nature and religion, loss and renewal. His poems are lucid snapshots developed in a subtle amalgam of memory and intuition. Lyrical and linguistically inventive and yet faithful to poesy of European gloom, Bansal investigates complex personal history, family and romantic love in carefully sculpted lines, thereby making his poetry an odyssey at once metaphorically and emphatically real.

Prologue:
For ‘Heaven Shimla’-
Morrow, at dusk, when the rays awake their embryo,

I’ll again move in thy breasts; …

Book Review:
The story is awesomely presented. Right from the beginning to the ultimate scene, one can find herself glued to the words. Characterisation, narration, plotting, presentation are all 4/5. Despite there are few areas of improvement, the story is a goodread. I loved reading it all over and spending my value time and cherishing the tale. Story's uniqueness is simply something to be appreciated. Kudos to the author. Wish to read more from your side that too in a paper back.

You too can enjoy this amazing ride by ordering and r…
