Siddhartha Menon’s debut poetry collection reveals him as a sensitive poet who is able to compose multilayered poems. The freshness of diction and the powerful images and metaphors employed, set this collection apart. Most of the poems are set in the tranquil, verdant Himalayan foothills. His communion with nature — the hills, flora and fauna — reflects not only his acute observation skills, but also a kinship with the world around him. There is a kind of live-and-let-live understanding and human warmth that the poems exude. They touch at the deepest levels of one’s consciousness and are uplifting. The reader can take delight in discovering the treasures buried deep in the poems.
