While bidding farewell…is a compilation of 51 poems. These poems are an
abstract reflection of myriad emotions cutting across the domains of philosophy, enlightenment, love, affection, heartbreak, innocence, relationships, responsibility, reality, universality, and celebration of life. They are nothing but a culmination, and a mere randomly scattered display of formless metaphors.
More often than not, they are translations of these metaphorical happenings into words, while still attempting to retain the original purity, at the time of their occurrence. This book endeavours to convey indelible silence through words embedded into poems, capture sublime yet subtle happenings, and bring them into material existence.
