Treat yourself to a collection of inspirational poems with Vikas Parihar's The Poems and The Poet. The book opens with "Sorrow and Happiness," an illuminating poem that shows how we can find the light in our darkest times through empathy and understanding. "I, Me, and My" calls out those self-centered souls driven by ego, greed, and selfishness and urges them to take a lesson in humility. "The Poem" celebrates the inherent artistry of the poetic medium and revels in its beauty and grace. From the grandest cosmological scales to the smallest moments of silence between heartbeats, everything falls under the vast tapestry of "Time." "The Joy of Life" highlights those aspects of life that make it worth living. "The Duality" shows the contradictions that surround us in nature and life.

Through this mesmerizing poetry collection, Vikas Parihar touches upon a diverse range of topics and themes related to life, nature, and existence. The Poems and The Poet is a must-read for poetry lovers. It delves into the different facets of the human experience, including love, sorrow, death, hope, fear, time, and more. In his verses, Parihar uses rhyming quatrains with a lyrical flair and flow that makes them a joy to read. Each poem feels unique and brings something of its own to the larger narrative. I enjoyed every single poem, but I found myself particularly moved by "The Life and Its Expanse" and "The Tragedies of Displacement." Overall, this is a wonderful collection of poems that inspire and enlighten. Poetry readers should not miss out on this one!
