Sounds of Silence, which has appeared from Mysore in 1993, is perhaps the best collection of the poet, which he authored from time to time, in his long career, spanning over the years, right from 1958, which he he had been trying to perfect and reshape. To see it in other words, Sounds of Silence is one such work in which the poet has tried to catch the rhythm and nuance, cadence and pulsation of modern city-life and culture, the angst and bewilderment of the age which he lived in. Eden Revisited, Messages, Tiger, A Politician's Gita, Ecological Stakes, Smoky Evenings, Owning an Urban Home, On Autobiographies, Barbie, At the Chicken Farm, City, Ahmedabad,etc. can easily be singled pout from the said collection. Sounds of Silence is the title poem as well as the book-title. Poetry, to Menon, is a story of the contemporary time running into a chaotic state of flux; the angst and bewilderment of the age in which he was born. The anxiety seems to be corroding the self of the contemporary-time poet. Sometimes expression gets lost in the linguistic jargon of words.
