Penumbra of Indian Verses - book cover

Allahabad, India, Sep 9, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) After the huge literary success of his 4th book 21 Lines Fusion Sonnets of 21st Century [online sale] which has established Sonnet as one of the greatest innovators of Sonnet poetry, Sonnet Mondal (WBRi exclusive interview) is going to launch another poetry book soon.

Sonnet’s Mondal's new book of poems Penumbra of Indian Verses [order online] will be releasing shortly this month from Cyberwit publishers of Allahabad.

The book ‘Penumbra of Indian Verses’ contains a bouquet of Indian English poems penned by Sonnet mostly at night. The poems are not of darkness but they peer through darkness like a beacon touching various notes upon the piano of Indian English. The poems in this collection take their roots from keen day to day observations and present powerful images in simple fresh language to paint a real life scenario. The poet doesn’t act self-seeking by telling his own stories but each moment he has placed himself in the place of others to pen down the feelings germane to the society as a whole. For readers the book will surely be a journey through Indian roads studded with jewels of Indian philosophy as it is perceived by a young yet mature mind.

Excerpt from the book:

My Existence

After three years of writing stories
My bio seems like a Russian General
Overburdened with hanging medals.
I want to shed my uniform
And sit wearing a towel
On the ridge of a paddy field
Which spreads like Green Ocean
To become one with blue skies
Within limits of my vision
To invoke reflection making me realize
My existence swimming in vastness.

Note from the back page:

The book contains 75 verses written upon different themes and situations along with two brief write ups upon Sonnet’s journey in the literary world.
