A collection of poems which chronicles the daily events of the poet. It is confessional poetry in nature, and follows the traditional method of writing poetry.
Tears to Joy is a short collection of poems depicting the light and dark motifs of Lifeas written down by a girl, a woman; a daughter, wife and mother . The backgroundeverywhere isfilled with Natures beauty . Whether it be joy or sorrow ; love or death the author brings in birds and trees and flowers; sun and showers and mist to tell her story. The theme of ‘Tears to Joy’ is seen in the spiritual thread that runs throughout as the author ends in either joyous praise or transcending the bondage of pain.
“The themes of this collection are many and varied– simple joys of life in the family circle, innocence, and tenderness of childhood, love in its many shades, nature in all its grandeur and mystery, philosophical reflections on time, life and death and a constant examination for the meaning of all these, were reverie and reality join hands. The verses are mostly lyrical but not in the formal pattern of the conventional lyric. It is just informal, intimate poetic speech. The free, rapid flow of words, often in the monologue mode, sometimes the breaks rules of syntax and punctuation in trying to keep pace with his thoughts. The poet’s style is also remarkable for its frequent use of personification and capital letters to make his point. In a way, this work is a poetic autobiography of one who has lived a rich and contented life. It offers us an hour’s delightful reading.”

This book is the first step to world of poetry and would request the reader to connect the dots and feel my world of emotions.
“I wrote and read everything in my childhood, in every genre. The first story appeared in Hindustan Times in 1971. Being busy with a bank job could not get so much time. Now after retiring, I have tried to reach my creations. Many awards have also been received but my creations have not reached many people.

All that I have seen and experienced about my family, love, community, kids and my country has been put in my thoughts.

“Strawberries and Cigarettes,
Is a book expressing mostly the heart of nowadays youth. It’s a journey from falling in love with not only someone else but one’s own self and then getting that heart broken, and then picking up those shattered pieces and continuing on.
-Because not all the time can we let things out on our own, sometimes we find our story in the words of someone else.”
“Every part of me will be in love with you for the rest of your life. I wanted to be the one that you never see coming. It is tough to believe that you let me go. You may see a million sunrises in my absence, but only I can make that beautiful for you.” An intense feeling of love, which is beyond to express in words, acts like a fierce “flame.” Moon has the power to make nights beautiful by fading the darkness away with its charm. This book is about the “flames” of a lover who was left by his love of life. His pain and grief that not being with his charm of the living “moon”. But he will never stop his fight until he wins his battle. This book contains 36 poems. It is a journey of true love. And its madness for beloved ones. This book is the expression of unconditional love towards their partner. “I will love you until God decides that it is time for me to leave this body…leaving my body is an end but my love will conquer this world to start a new beginning. In my absence, it will worship you for ages.” There is no death for love. If you truly love anyone, even your death will conquer this world.
At our every walk in the pathway of our life, we come across moments. Bound with less of choice, we have to walk through it, be it happy or sad. Such moments that we encounter from the start till the end of our lives are being piled up in this book which is named “Moments of Life – a book of poetic illustrations”.
“”” A drop of ink may make a million think””- Lord Byron,
Is exactly what I hope to achieve from this book . When I started writing, it was at first very personal , like for a friends special celebration or an announcement, but then I witnessed what a powerful impression words could leave behind .
So this book contains my poetry which is written on various topics , such as Love or The Youth of today or even Religion to name a few & make us ponder on how we view the world at large .
These verses express my heartfelt feelings for that particular subject & I hope to leave the readers with an afterthought of
What can we do next to Improve our Existence ? or shed light on our world through my own perception .
If my few words can help others reflect ( like it made me), to pause in life , look around , be gracious with gratitude , then I will believe my purpose of writing has been successful .
We all have a lot to say but I hope this book makes you feel the emotion .”
“Accepting the reality with ease, I would like to clarify here that there was no goal of writing poetry nor there was any hope for
the creation of a poetry collection in the midst of the varied engagements of life. But no restrictions were ever imposed on himself
to read the compositions and poems of poet friends.
Some compositions seemed heart touching and pithy. Then he would have the desire to read again and again.
Similar works put writing in my hands. Inspired by such heart-touching compositions, promptly trying to put words of mind
into words, wrote a short poem and then came the response, “”This first poem is so excellent, the journey ahead will be excellent””.
This reaction became the inspiration of my writing, so the creation of the circumference started.
I did not even know when that small reaction started the creation of the periphery.
“”” Poetry is a deal of joy , pain and wonder with a dash of dictionary .””
The above quote depicts the mood of my book – ‘ Deepak ki Roshni ‘ – , the best . My this collection of poems , songs and ghazals is a kaleidoscope of feeling of love , joy , pain , anguish , wonder , disgusts , empathy to name a few .
All the subjects are a part of our neighbouring surroundings and are related to the life of a common man in some or the other way . Where some of them show the ugly face of society , the others allow us to peep in the world of nature , love , beauty and happiness .
I have sincerely tried to creat a colleague of how I see the world and what it means to me . So this collection can be called as spectrum of expressions .
As a veteran , life has enriched me with various experiences which I took as enlightenment . Hence “” Deepak ki Roshni “” was possible .
I take immense pleasure in presenting the first collection of my poems to you with a ray of hope that you all will consider it and embrace it with affection .”
“Today when I will shut the windows, I will not be sad. I will be smiling,looking over our book , on your bedside table. The black cover we chose, it’s not black anymore. The love you poured, colored it red.”
Its an emotional journey of true love, brokenhearted faith and ever lasting memories. I always found solace in my poems. Alike, find yourself connected with my poems, every sigh of despair because true love is immortal. Believe me
“””This book deals with the emotions of person going through phase of love and after that.
Various tastes of emotions dwell in this situation and this book contains all that forms of love. “””
The collection of poems in this book is an attempt to awaken in the reader a desire to know the true reality. To understand this reality, one needs to delve deep inside oneself, access the Ocean of Memories that lies well within the ambit of each soul; memories that can be invoked by the blessings of a Master.
It is a wonderful poetic collection, describing the continuous decline of society and the everyday struggle of youth. Which provides the direction of harmony to the nation. With the rise of human civilization, culture and tradition were also created. Due to the constantly moving chronology of the world, civilizations were distorted. Human traditions and original culture began to be violated. For this reason, the youth also began to decline automatically. To compensate for the same downfall, I composed this poetry collection. So that a universal awakening can arise in the youth and society for centuries.
“Myriad emotions experienced through life, sometimes across a lotus pond, sometimes amidst the presence of a Guru, sometimes when watching the stars, or measuring your heart’s beats waiting to be inked
lest they be lost..
That’s how this book came about.”
“Desires play a very important role in our life to remain happy and satisfied.
Our desires equal everything we secretly dream about, visualize or imagine. They’re not just far-off, impractical wishes or impossible hopes. We all must follow what our heart desires and we will definitely reach the real happiness.
This book is all about what our heart desires and is expressed beautifully by the author in the form of poems making us enjoy our life, our surroundings in the best possible way.”

Poetry is an art form that can touch the hearts of many in just a few words. It is remarkable how a young adult like yourself is able to encapsulate such deep feelings in poems. Your way of expressing thoughts, beliefs and ideas is unique and meaningful. Hon. Mrs. Smriti Irani (Minister of Woman and Child Development and Textiles –India) Poetry helps us make sense of our struggle and our pain while finding beauty in them. Your poems have that strength – the strength to value fear, darkness, insecurities in general. You’ve found beauty in things we tend to ignore and that is truly commendable.

Every poem I wrote was crying out for help. I was alone and depressed and had no idea about who I was or who I would become, which tore me apart. I was looking for a book which understood me, and the only purpose behind writing this book was to get people out of that feeling and help them not feel alone. This book shouts out the problems a teenager goes through – falling in love, anxiety, mood swings, confused identity, and feeling alone surrounded by people.
it is the collection of Hindi poems with different dimensions and mostly based on burning issues of environmental pollution and its future effects along with patriotism

There will be no one at the time when a part of you gets up and leave giving you no solid reasons. I have been to that dark, silent cave, everytime reachering in and out in search of that someone which finally took the shape of this book. During those days what kept burning inside me were these words which i read somewhere that all the ending are beginning, we just don’t know it at that moment.
