Seizing the spirit of a difficult and confusing age and conscious of the momentous and crucial challenges in the post-modern era, the poet with an originality of evocative images mesmerizes, discarding obscure and ingeniously intelligible sophistication of urbane characteristics. Occasional surge of rhythmic language and love for realism permeates his poetry. Treatment of imperceptible meanderings into world of the known and the unknown engages and excites. Varied experiences gathered, amaze as words create music in a nostalgic orb. Celebration of instinctive love for literature, tradition and religion is apparent, as refined worldly outlook of poet makes lyrics memorable.

Some of the poems in this book disturbingly depict the damage caused to the society by people’s exploitation, violence and avarice for material comforts. The poet views Women as saviors of life, art, culture and heritage so he feels upset by the fact that many men are cruel and bestial towards them. The poet observes that Selfishness mutilates relationships, as warmth turns frigid.

Through his poetry, the poet also raises questions about life and death and its metaphysical implications. A man thinks he is somewhere but alas, he is nowhere, for he is perpetually engulfed by feelings of emptiness. If a man desires to merge with the Lord, he must discover the true meaning of silence and solitude. This lucid moment of discovery, understanding and realization can then usher in freedom and harmony to his life, such is the missive given by Rajender Krishan’s poetry which is gentle, lyrical and thought-provoking.
