I am writing this post as a response to the indiblogger prompt #indispire268 which goes as follows: It is not a difficult choice for me to list the three books that I want to read. In fact I wanted to read these books so desperately that I got them one month back from the library … Continue reading Reading : Out of Love or Obligation?
To associate love with sacrifice is sublime. To mix love with pleasure is human. And to make business out of love is American.

My illustrator friend Sailaja Anand ( who is also an eternal optimist) has put up her perceptions of my poems on her blog.
‘Teach Me To Dream’ has been written by Mr. Durga Prasad Dash whose work I always have admired. It is an anthology of poems that celebrate life in its myriads of aspects: love, longing, pain, illusion,beauty and ugliness, freedom, bondage, war, politics, enlightenment.There is no sphere of life that is left un touched by the author. Each emotion is conveyed beautifully and every reality is expressed with conviction. Each stanza is a beautiful piece in itself, touching the deep core.

melody in air, and
dance in water”
Through words the author is indeed celebrating the nature with beautiful expression.
