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 by Jayashree


In her own words…

It has no form-no shape- no definite identity.
But still it has a specific identity- because it differs from person to person.
It does not have any death-it does not have any decay-it does know all.
When you like at the night sky-your mind wings to fly thousands of light years away- away from the milky way- away from galaxies-to the kingdom where zillions of stars sparkle like diamonds.
Are you really up there to the kingdom of stars?
But your wish has the speed to beat light- beat anything-to propel your shadow to the kingdom where there is no death- no decay!
In the words of the Gita
na jayate mriyate va kadacin
nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah
ajo nityah sasvato ‘yam purano
na hanyate hanyamane sarire
(For the soul there is never birth nor death. Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.)
So a point comes where philosophy and imagination coalesces- where there is everything ‘ satyam ,shivam ,sundaram’.

It is all utopian-you may say! These are all dreams-you may say!
It is all imagination…..
I will say it is imagination-that is why it is beautiful. And truth is beauty- beauty is truth!
Glittering Shadows by Manish Ranjan is dedicated to the imagination of human soul. in writer’s words_”far beyond this realm there is a valley of roses, a river of peace, a mountain of serenity, an ocean of hope, and air echoing my words of perpetual love, a world of my dreams, where it is just you and me; a word where the days are bright with positivity and nights filled with festivity; a world where even pain has a love; a world where shadows glitter.”

Review of Glittering Shadows on Book Geeks by Sankalpita


In her own words:

In the words of the famous Leonardo Da Vinci “Painting is Poetry which is seen and not heard, and Poetry is a Painting which is heard but not seen”. Poetry thus, is an essence of human life for it portrays all that is beautiful in the world and all that is beautiful in life. Going by the recent trend, poetry in the Indian publishing industry is surely on the uptrend and why should it not be? After all it is the lifeline of every language and every civilization.

Most recent on the block is Manish Ranjan’s “Glittering Shadows” a book which in my opinion is a beautiful tribute to love and all of womankind. The book is divided into three sections – Love and be Loved, Life and Reflection and Womanhood and Her Crisis. The first part deals with love, love stories, feelings of love and all that is there about love. This section has a total of thirty two poems all of which are dedicated to love and its mysteries. My favourites among them are – She is Daddy’s Girl, Our First Kiss, That Forlorn Smile and That Old Banyan Tree. All the poems are hopelessly romantic and deeply emotional. Each thought, each emotion and each feeling has been captured so intensely by the author that the heart cannot help but melt at the exquisiteness of those words… Read more on the original review page!

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!
