Living in a world, which is already with one foot in the next century, when I review myself, I realise, that, that my life and thought have been one of paraphrasing enormous stretches of time through which man trudged his way to reach me and this generation and now will pass through me into the future like the shaft of tomorrow’s sun.

So the many rivers of blood that flow in me, carry cargoes of this consciousness, which whenever spelt out in human speech in the dawns and dusks of my time accumulated into scraps of paper showing undecipherable notes in the daylight. For some decades now I have lived on the hope that someday I would unravel the mysteries held by these characters, the hasty zigzag scribblings and perhaps they would one day turn into a poem, a story or a theory, if I am allowed to recapture the moments through which my life passed as if through a sieve.

In life I have travelled long distances, have received unhealing wounds, cruelly mauled and bruised; today the voices of those wounds yearn to pass through me and my flesh. I realise there is hardly any time left to indulge in these ambitious experiments of deciphering the inarticulate script that these stacked bundles carry, since I have no shades to sit and ruminate on the past and dialogue with moments which left me long ago.

Youth looks at life through stained glass-windows of illusion, and maturity bequeaths the gift of appreciating the heartlessness and selfishness of life. In poetry, only an iota of one’s experience creeps in, that too, slyly. But in a note-book the tides of our thinking get anchored over the shores of paper, while life still drifts on in the red river.

One fine morning, lilies were blooming brilliant red around and the last traces of Gulmohor were still seen on the branches. The world looked peaceful, tinged by dawn, but I sighed saying “will God ever spare me the time from these cruelties of life to finish all the plans which are lying like unhatched eggs in the nests of my pages”?

A friend of mine observed thoughtfully “In my opinion they will make a very expressive poet’s Note Book...which will be a window to your mind, your mental portrait.”

He leafed through the pages and told me “I have run through these notes and felt that in these pages a sensitive mind will move through the stirring pageantry of the great struggles and reveries of Man on this planet. In my opinion it will undoubtedly be the most interesting Notebook to come from any intellectual.” Thus the book emerged.

Visionary Poet of the Millennium
An Indian poet Prophet
Seshendra Sharma
October 20th, 1927 - May 30th, 2007
eBooks : http://kinige.com/author/Gunturu Seshendra Sharma
Seshendra Sharma is one of the most outstanding minds of modern Asia. He is the foremost of the Telugu poets today who has turned poetry to the gigantic strides of human history and embellished literature with the thrills and triumphs of the 20th century. A revolutionary poet who spurned the pedestrian and pedantic poetry equally, a brilliant critic and a scholar of Sanskrit, this versatile poet has breathed a new vision of modernity to his vernacular. Such minds place Telugu on the world map of intellectualism. Readers conversant with names like Paul Valery, Gauguin, and Dag Hammarskjold will have to add the name of Seshendra Sharma the writer from India to that dynasty of intellectuals.

Rivers and poets
Are veins and arteries
Of a country.
Rivers flow like poems
For animals, for birds
And for human beings-
The dreams that rivers dream
Bear fruit in the fields
The dreams that poets dream
Bear fruit in the people-
* * * * * *
The sunshine of my thought fell on the word
And its long shadow fell upon the century
Sun was playing with the early morning flowers
Time was frightened at the sight of the martyr-

a colossus of Modern Indian poetry.
His literature is a unique blend of the best of poetry and poetics.
Diversity and depth of his literary interests and his works
are perhaps hitherto unknown in Indian literature.
From poetry to poetics, from Mantra Sastra to Marxist Politics his writings bear an unnerving pprint of his rare genius.
His scholar ship and command over Sanskrit , English and Telugu Languages has facilitated his emergence as a towering personality of comparative literature in the 20th century world literature.
T.S.Eliot , Archbald Macleish and Seshendra Sharma are trinity of world poetry and Poetics.
His sense of dedication to the genre of art he chooses to express himself and
the determination to reach the depths of subject he undertakes to explore
place him in the galaxy of world poets / world intellectuals.
