love is just

Love is Just a Story

Arjun Chaudhuri


These are poems that have been created out of the material of love. Love is, in all ways, a force that destroys. And since in destruction, as the Tantra says, are the seeds of creation, therefore love also births, and profoundly so. Poems such as these must be read without reserve and with empathy.

Dr. S. N. Dev (PhD, Oxon.)
