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.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
