I enjoyed reading Dark Flowers, and I think it is splendid that Mr. Ashanti has probed a culture that is so rich; his work nourishes the love of an Indian culture that fills the ocean. His style of writing is magnificent and impressive indeed. Mr. Ashanti, through his work, has given soul to his characters and thusly made them immortal.

In this volume of sacred poetry for the sensual soul, Ashanti creates colours, light and music which awaken the imagination and bathes them in rapture. The book Dark Flowers is an aesthetic treat on every level for lovers of poetry and everyone who embraces the connection between the sensual and the divine.

Mr. Ashantis poetic diction, his dedication to research in various fields of Indian life; especially in classical Indian music and dance has produced a beautiful book. Dark Flowers is a wild Dionysian romp that must be read!
