About Significant And Heartfelt
Significant And Heartfelt is Manik’s first poetry collection. These are poems that talk about love, life, longing, death and sorrow. Manik has dedicated this book to his influences – T.S. Eliot, Mirza Ghalib, and Poet Grace(aka Manik Godghate). The poems are as internal looking as they relish the world outside.
In a poem, Manik is shocked by a suicide, in another he is talking about “Life Itself”. There are poems about a small, quaint street in Bangalore, and there is a reply to Wang Wei about the changing nature of One’s poems. Manik talks about Aliens in the same breath as he is talking about a Yogi meditating on his breath. These poems are a boisterous celebration of life in all its forms without judging it.
