“Jaydeep Sarangi gives a fresh paint to everyday living. ‘Small rivers’ near tribal villages are his haunts. His language can be unorthodox, where a rock can turn into a ‘reckless flow”, but his poems are a rewarding read, with the scent of herbs coming through the pages.”
-KekiDaruwalla ,One of the leading Indian writers in English and the recipient of the SahityaAkademi Award.
“The myriad of experiences thrust on us in every moment of contemporary life exercises Jaydeep Sarangi’s poetic mind, and produces poems full of questionsand hopes but also recognitions of limitations. The wish to break away, to take flightfrom moment to moment meets a realistic awareness of links to the land of red soil.”….Dr.Dennis Haskell, One of the leading writers from Western Australia and the Director, Westerly Centre, the University of Western Australia .
