“Mukhopadhyay writes in full bloom in utter celebration of the beauty of nature. He is essentially romantic in spirit. Like Shelley andWordsworth, he sees the mysterious divine force in the beauty of nature which is rarely sung by the modern poets who aremostly weaned away by the ugliness of the metropolitan life and social issues.

~Dr. K.V.Raghupathi, "Brave New Wave- 21 Indian English Poets'”

These wonderful poems are composed like an onomatopoeic song dedicated to Nature's beauty. They reflex the sounds, rhythms, movements and energy that flow freely on Natural world around humanity. The author brings us to magic surroundings where we are forced to observe, as he teaches us to do, the incredible harmony and fantastic buildings of knowledge that hide in the Natural outside. He makes us to understand the deep spirituality that lives in Nature.

~Maria Cristina Azcona, "A Guide to Find Peace"
