Babru Samal, author
‘In Search of Magnificence’ is a collection of poems by Babru Samal, a scientist, a photographer and a poet with a unique way of looking at things around him. These poems reflect his journey through cultural landscapes of east and west, of emotion and logic and span various aspects of our experience and notions in our lives. The theme of the collection is to experience magnificence in our mundane life and derive amazement by changing the way we look at the creation which we selectively overlook to be in our comfort zone. The life offers us a plethora of physical and emotional stimuli to enrich our moments. The minute of these moments make the body of this collection. The collection intrigues us ‘About God’, ‘About the universe’ and ‘About life’. It looks into the world of immigrants, who recreate a world wherever they go to resemble the world they left behind in their native land. The section on ‘Bemusing about the other half’ looks into the allurement of womanhood and ‘My world as I see it’ delineates the rapids of our emotions about the rapidly integrating cultures of the world that is so fascinating and sometimes overwhelming.
