About the Book

'Rohinton Daruwala's poems unfold like a baramasa, an almanacof seasons and sensations, exquisite torments and explosions ofdelight. He essays a sensuous portraiture of place, invoking torrentialmonsoons, arid summers, railway bridges at night, libraries in deserts.[He] spells out a frank eroticism in the textures and flavours of the same time, [he] is entangled in the hypermodern present.He gathers traces of the loved one from residues both material anddigital... [He] maps the city, not only through the portraiture ofhuman protagonists, but also through the micro-ecologies inhabited bybutterflies and sparrows... In Daruwala's handling, the poem can be anoblique parable, a brief lamp of wisdom in the wind of distraction: lightas breath, yet as essential.'-Ranjit Hoskote
