Translated from the original Punjabi, this work is an anthology of seventy-five poems of Pash, eminent Punjabi poet and revolutionary whose real name was Avtar Singh Sandhu.
His rural background, political activity, journalistic career and revolutionary ideology rendered life and color to his poetic art. The poems in this collection range from his earliest in Lohkhatha to his latest in Khilre Hol Verke, published posthumously. His earlier poems overflow with intense rage that the poet felt on seeing the deprived. His later poems reflect his poetic negotiation with all aspects and facets of life. In his last collection, we find Pash's poetic negotiations in all its richness and maturity.
The English translation is authentic and at the same time eloquent.
