Making a Poem by Vihang Naik

Poetry reading is always cool. However, just decline the modern terminology which banners poetry as something hot - we are not letting the sensual lines on Instagram and Facebook take the pose as poetry! I only consider meaningful poetry to be the real poetry and today I am talking of a leading India's poet in English, Vihang Naik's collection - Making a Poem. Though the collection is old but he has republished it with the Authors Press publication and that's how I got to read this wonderful collection. I will share my thoughts on the poetry collection today.

Sikkim in my Love Story by Narsing Nirzat

Sikkim is one of the most beautiful states of India without a doubt and that's why it's the tourist spot likely to be visited when someone plans a trip to north-east India. However, how many of us know about the tradition of Sikkim? How many of us know the real story of Sikkim? How many of us think how did Sikkim age? To all these questions, a recently launched fiction book can be the answer - Sikkim in my Love Story - a collection of short stories by a talented and popular author from Sikkim himself, Narsing Nirzat. His book has nine long-short stories and each has an equal length - 34 pages.
