Vagaries of a Lost World
I love observing and analysing human nature, as it is one of the most complex creations of God. I have tried to capture these very observations into poetic form. Ravi Shankar Rajan bases his volume of poetry, Vagaries of a Lost World, on different facets of human behavior. Most of the poems describe his personal experiences and the fascinating array of people he has met in such a large country as India. In this volume, I have tried to capture strange situations and little things in life that make us laugh, cry or hate. I sincerely hope that through this work readers will experience the multitude of emotions that I have tried to elicit in this volume.
