This book of poetry by Dr Abraham Verghese, an entomologist, ornithologist, nature conservationist and a spiritualist contains metric verses which are ‘silent songs from the heart’. Many reviewers have found the variety of themes in the composition to be a befitting symbolism of the diverse interests the author manifests. His constant association with farmers who sow and reap, seems to have influenced his personality, and this perhaps rings throughout the book in terms of eventual hope and triumph
