About the Book
‘I Am Not a Saint’ is a collection of more than fifty poems and one hundred quadrants. The poems are written in free verse. With ecstatic themes of life, death, love, suffering and pain, the book describes a person’s desire to find peace in this entire crowded world. The poet wants to explain how even a subtle smile can change our sight, even when everything seems to be against us how a person’s eyes can make us look at everything differently, how sometimes solitude is all a person’s needs even if he doesn’t desire so. There are many things that the heart craves for, although they might seem irrational and utopian for the mind, but the nimble adamancy of the heart propels the person to confusion, haze and restlessness. Many desires are beyond the concepts of morality and arrogance; a person might want to float in his imagination even if he has a realm at his feet. Ignoring all intellect and abomination, a person just wants to delve in his silly electrifying dreams.
