"THE SECOND THOUGHT" - Portrait of real life
Acharya Sanjiv Verma 'Salil'
A commoner relates Poetry with imagination rather than the realities of life but in his second poetry collection titled "the Second Thought" Pro. Anil Jain contradict it by giving poems related with day to day life. He has successfully and very beautifully used the famous lines by notable western poets Becon, Wordsworth, Shelley, James Hadley Chase, Irving Washington, Irving Wallace etc. in Present Indian contexts proving that poetry is eternal and can't be imprisoned in the cages of nations, colour or creeds.
All these poems look the life with a different angel and give a healthy thought to make it better. We are rapidly getting alchohalic to web world and our routine is disturbed, Anil ji is worried looking the ill effects increasing day by day. He correctly warns- "We had our line crossed / While surfing / And caught in the web."
