In Search of the Lotus Feet

Anup Mitra (Author)
Synopsis This volume comprises about seventy poems mostly reflecting the desire of the poet’s subconscious mind to reach that component of truth, which remains beyond the experiences of the senses. To reach the bottom of the ocean, to look beyond the starry breast of the sky, to feel the compassion in the eyes of the statue and to understand the cause of an action beyond what is usually identified, encompass the orbit of the poet’s journey, be it in the world of existentialism, or mysticism or spiritualism or a peculiar mixture of all. Notwithstanding the variation in themes most of the poems have a tendency to unite themselves in a garland expressing the passion to pursue the struggle in search of the lotus feet. Three sub-sections representing yearning, merging and berating (and social realism) are included under the titles looking beyond the horizon, waves of joy and against the dishonour respectively. A large majority of the poems, of course, fall into the first two categories, providing justification to the selection of the title of the volume.
