  • The best way to know about a Man's Character is to go with him for a couple of rounds in the ring. You would know more about him than he himself does. The Writer started learning martial arts to get better at street fights as he invariably found himself indulging in them during his years growing up and unknowingly became a student of the combat arts until he finally settled down and had a life. Although considered a nuisance in itself and rightly so the fights that he found himself in and the combat anecdotes of the greats made contributions of the highest order in his approach and attitude towards life. The lessons learnt on the streets and in the rings gave a definite direction to his life which otherwise was missing. He in this book has tried to comprehend these virtues for the readers and hopes to make a small contribution in the enrichment of all those who are willing to take a hit or two with a grin on their faces.

  • लिखना तो काफी पहले शुरू कर दिया था, कलम ने चौदह साल का वनवास गुजारा और तब उसे एक पहचान मिली, संसार के एक कोने से आ रही एक पुकार के रूप में। आज की तारीख में मेरे तीन कहानी संग्रह आपके सामने आ गए हैं और दो कविता संग्रह की शुरुआत मैं पश्चात मेरे हाथ से कर रहा हूँ। मेरी कविताओं के आठ संग्रह तैयार हो गए थे लेकिन मैंने दो-दो संग्रह के एक संग्रह बनाकर उन्हे निकालने की सोची है। पश्चात मेरे हाथ संग्रह को मैं नया या कि पहली रचना नहीं कह सकता, जिस तरह से कहानियों के बारे में कहता हूँ लेकिन इनमे से कई कविताएं एक दौर की शुरुआत जरूर थे, एक धीमी शुरुआत। कविताओं में ये सब लक्षित होता है। ज़्यादातर कवितायें व्यक्ति के लिए हैं कुछ राजनैतिक रंग भी है, महीने भर का राशन जैसी कविताओं मे ये दिखता है। कई कविताओं मे खुद मेरे लिए आश्चर्यजनक है कि विचारों की जबर्दस्त तीक्ष्णता है...ऐसा होता है जब लोग एक क्षण में कई क्षण गुजारते हैं और अपने जीवन के विभिन्न दौरों में मैंने ये खूब किया है। मेरा खुद का सोचना है कि मैं लेखक से पहले कवि रहा हूँ और खुद से आशा करता हूँ कि मेरी कविताएं मेरी उम्मीदें पूरी करें। जीवन के उस महायुग के पश्चात जो मेरे हाथ है वो आपके सामने है।

  • I'm still not sure how I found it, Or rather how it found me. By finding it I lost myself. It broke me, just to rebuild me, Like a phoenix forged through ashes and fire. I grasped my words to just be Ramblings of a Lunatic, But isn't that somewhat,somehow, something we all desire. by Somya Matta
