Review of Glittering Shadows by Dhwani

I was happy to see the pic of the book she posted on her website There And Their. It had a doll beside my book. It really brought me a smile on my face and immense satisfaction that she liked it. I am really thankful to her for her kind words about my work. I hope my book, as it turns an year old tomorrow, bring smile and love to its readers. It’s your love and support that makes my feel motivated.

Review of Glittering Shadows on Booktica by Kalyan Panja

In his own words…

Glittering Shadows is the poetic journey of Manish Ranjan who narrate an unspeakable and the invisible truth, and walk through a lonely and painful fact of atmosphere that cannot be defined, of certainties of the heart, of feelings that skim barely, shadows that become firm and a yearning burning of the beloved.

A path is not easy to those who set out to analyze an existential condition, in an attempt to enter, remain in the doorway, in the philosophical dimension of this poetry collection and what emerges is a portrait of a poet who uses words harmoniously ruling them with the rigor and brilliance of a great bard, as if they were one with him, and comes as an excellent knowledge and ability to use the instrumentation rhetoric, of a singular expressive compactness, of choice of words, finally, deeply motivated.

Through his passionate words, the author pours his vision of problematic restless existence with a full circle in celebration of poetry in all its manifestations through the pages of a book, in the heart of a poet, in a precious perfume bottle. The poetry comes from everything that has a spark of revelation and has a myriad of sparks to reveal to our nose and our skin in an unforgettable lesson in poetry…Read more on the original review page!

The Chained Soul

Sometimes, I look in the mirror and see my inner self.
Tied with shackles of past, prejudice and penitence.
I struggle hard to break free, and leave behind this broken self.
But I know not why, I lack the strength, the motivation and sanguineness.

Every day, in my dream, I would see myself, growing weaker and fragile.
Like this lonely heart, shattered- a countless pieces, scattered…
But in my dream, I see a hand; The Hand of an angel- soft but not frail.
That pulls me with all her strength, but the demonic shackles won’t break but clatter!

These fetters try to hold me back into the darkness, endlessly, shamelessly…
But that hand tries harder, and my hands bleed; I cry- not out of pain…
I cry, because I had started liking the darkness, and this hand was pulling me away.
Because I found love in these shackles which won’t let me go, and pull me back again!

This hand, then holds mine, tighter, to let me know that she is with me.
That I need not worry, and that I need not be scared; she wants me to hold onto it.
I start feeling the strength; I start regaining the faith- in her and in me.
I then, give my all and break those chains, and then I see the light and my angel’s smile.

But then my dream ends, and I still find myself in chains and pitch-black darkness.
I cry for her- my angel; but she wouldn’t come, and I wait sleeplessly, hopelessly…
But today, I saw that hand again; It’s not a dream this time.
Today, I gave into her powers and charms, and she has finally set me free…
