Rose Gardens and Minefields is a compilation of my finest poems, short stories and essays which focus on such topics as the menace of terrorism, the Maoist insurgency in India, the fate of the Indian woman, the hospitable nature of Mumbai and our tryst with destiny. This compilation was published by Leadstart Publishing in 2011 and can be purchased online from sites like Amazon.com and Flipkart.com.
The poems in this work are romantic, patriotic, satirical, philosophical and witty. The short stories, based in heaven, hell and outer space, are outlandish, humorous and perhaps heretical. Rose Gardens and Minefields feature thought-provoking and interesting social commentaries on current affairs and various domains in the domestic and international arena. So, this book, basically, offers something for everyone.
