“From childhood to manhood, we learn how to cope with life. Adulthood is spent in earning a living and raising a family. By the time old age creeps in, one realizes that he has just let life pass him by without understanding its true meaning,” the author and poet ponders. “These poems are the journey of the poet who tries to understand life and man’s obligations toward society.”

Vasdev believes that mankind has plunged into a materialistic world – moving away from their roots, forgetting one’s obligations toward their fellowmen and the society. Hence, his poems are an attempt to lead the reader’s thoughts to spirituality and humanity. They also touch upon relationships in a family and society in general, and how people need to broaden their outlook to include the less fortunate in their thoughts and deeds.

Drawing inspiration from personal experiences and acts of commission or omission, the author invites readers to immerse on a poetic reflection of the Indian way of life.

“Life has its ups and downs. Man needs some solace and guidance at some point in life. These poems hope to provide both,” Vasdev adds.
