“The Morning Glory” revolves around awakening themes enchanting the beauty of creations from Poet’s heart… I recite your poems!”
“The Morning Glory” by Mr. Ratan Kaul is an amazing book that takes you back in time. It helps the reader embark on not only a philosophical journey but also a patriotic expedition by paying tribute to our brave heroes. Definitely, a must read! :)"
I bring you a small garland of poems… Joining the multi-hued blooms, In my life’s garden nurtured, During my eventful journey of years… To beget your love and cheers…
The dimensions of liberty, the need for justice, Illusory global peace
breeze of adolescent romance, the fragrance of love, sounds of bugles of victory and nationalism, the roar of nature, the romance of cloud messenger, the allurement of mythology, all themes that will touch your heart.
How was I born on this earth? Was I hurled from some other cosmos? Or was it the procreation as a human, After a one hundred and Eighty-four thousand births…”: (“Some Questions to God”)
“She ambled in the college corridors, with a royal grace that reminded one, Of the moon striding in the sky, or the gentle waves in the oceans.”: (“Romance in the corridors”) or “What shall I say to please thee? Praise your peachy blossoming complexion? Or the long, luscious tresses on your back? Or your striking heart shaped chin? Or your bubbly looks?”: (“What shall I say to please thee?”)
The sky is pellucid, brilliant blue at its best; Luminous on one corner is the crescent, And the tiny orbs suffuse as a canopy, While the cosmos is enveloped by a misty Stillness, quietude. A divine, serene, Blankness, barring the murmurs of wind Permeates gently in the mind.
I sense some floating foot strides. When you sidle up softly to meet me with whiffs of Aroma, Some unsure words, Some Nervous, Demure Gestures, Some veil of Hesitancy, Opacity, Stillness…
The book keeps the reader glued with how the protagonists overcome the many hurdles they face to be with each other for ever.
One realized how many layers exist in our diverse society for a simple emotion like love ….it takes you through the (Indian) Freedom movements and blends it with a bit of suspense and adventures.
"Wings of freedom" is a beautiful love story…The plot captured my attention and held me hostage to the last page…It is with great honor that I highly recommend this book.
The Full Circle encompasses the resulting latent as well as surreal aspects of post liberalization society in India.
From the author of “Wings of Freedom” comes the story of unrequited love laced with adventures, intrigues, social prejudices and cultural conflicts.
"The Full Circle" is loaded with all those elements that make a reader voluntary hostage and captivated. So, full marks to Ratan Kaul for bringing this amazingly beautiful book.
Want to spend lone time with books? Here are the three best weekend picks…The Full Circle:
कोरोना काल में घर बैठे बैठे बहुत थक गया हूं,
बहुत हो गया, दिल ही दिल में सोचता रहता हूं।
मैंने कब कहा कि मेरी बन जाओ
बस मुझ से अपनी नज़रें न चुराओ
ओ निशाकर, मेरे सुरों की
मधुर प्रेम-मय वर्षा कर दो
जिस क्षण मेरा जन्म हुआ
मेरा प्रथम क्रंदन हुआ
I have been a writer of prose, having already published two novels, “Wings of Freedom” and “The Full Circle: A Saga of Unrequited Love”. But since my childhood I have also been an admirer of poetry. I still remember nostalgically the great poets, whose poems had impacted my impressionable mind in school and college.
