The poetic renditions span the sociological, philosophical, and metaphysical dimensions of our human experience. Every poem in this volume is composed to excellent literary standards of meter, rhythm, and rhyme, promising a delightful read. Venilla Rajaguru displays remarkable mastery of metaphorical stylistics in verse. She excels in social satire just as in her philosophical mode.
