Hardcover. 66 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.It has always been my dream to publish my book of poems, which I have personally composed. It all began when I was nine years old, and since then, I have been writing about everything and everyone that has touched my life and influenced me in so many ways. The most noted influence was my wonderful late maternal grandfather, Mr. Upendra Chandra Das, who passed away in 1979. He wrote the first piece of this book entitled The Indian Milkmaid in Malaysia which so eloquently describes what the life of a milkmaid was like in this country way back in late 1960s. I included his poem in this book as a tribute to the amazing man who clearly changed my life forever. In February1993, my dearest sister, Nita Bardhan, presented me with a lovely journal on my birthday where I could write all my poems. Hence, Catching The Waves tells many different stories in the form of poetry, which is all about love, life, friendships and everything in between. From politics, world events, family and friendships, to sacrifices, sorrow, triumphs and tragedy, this book encompasses every aspect of human nature and everything that occurs in our daily lives. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading these unique pieces immensely as much as I did writing them. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Synopsis:

It has always been my dream to publish my book of poems, which I have personally composed. It all began when I was nine years old, and since then, I have been writing about everything and everyone that has touched my life and influenced me in so many ways. The most noted influence was my wonderful late maternal grandfather, Mr. Upendra Chandra Das, who passed away in 1979. He wrote the first piece of this book entitled "The Indian Milkmaid in Malaysia" which so eloquently describes what the life of a milkmaid was like in this country way back in late 1960s. I included his poem in this book as a tribute to the amazing man who clearly changed my life forever. In February1993, my dearest sister, Nita Bardhan, presented me with a lovely journal on my birthday where I could write all my poems. Hence, Catching The Waves tells many different stories in the form of poetry, which is all about love, life, friendships and everything in between. From politics, world events, family and friendships, to sacrifices, sorrow, triumphs and tragedy, this book encompasses every aspect of human nature and everything that occurs in our daily lives. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading these unique pieces immensely as much as I did writing them.
