The title of the book P-En-Chants is so fun-tastic ! Paddy really Enchants us with her witty chants illustrating her penchant for the pen. The chariot in her preface seems to say it all... not only the words but their arrangement in the shape of a chariot with poem and poet as wheels has a striking visual beauty.
Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for an echo, said Don Marquis. Padmaja Iyengar s maiden volume of poetry with the exhilarating title P-En-Chants stands out with assurance and elan and makes the above adage misplace its denotation. --(Pankajam)
