Every Time I wake up: Drawings by the Author (Poems by V P Singh)
Every Time I wake up: Drawings by the Author (Poems by V P Singh)
Description
From the Jacket:

The poems in this collection reveal some surprising facets of V. P. Singh known primarily as one of India's toughest politicians as he examines the complexities of attachment and love. Interspersed with these deeply personal reflection are mordant observations of a more prosaic world-of power and being out of it the business of news and the plight of the homeless.

The poems are striking for their honesty, as when he writes about his illness, and immediate in their impact at times possessing a spare beauty that has the same mesmerizing effect as does looking down into a clear crystalline pool.

Complementing some of the poems is a series of striking images drawn by the author.

About the Author:

He was born in Allahabad in 1931, and graduated from Allahabad and Pune Universities. He became an MLA in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly in 1969, and two years later a member of the Lok Sabha. He has held ministerial positions at the Centre including the defence and finance portfolios, and was chief minister of Uttar Pradesh from 1980 to 1982. He was Prime Minister of India from 1989 to 1990. While V. P. Singh remains active in Politics and social work his special interests include painting-he has held several solo shows and poetry.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
