We have been driven from ordeal to ordeal, and the quest has taken us far and wide, But the questions remain true and fast, and the ambiguities’ve turned into ambivalent songs. This sums up the theme of this poetic anthology.

Since my last volume of verse, The Aching Vision (WW, Calcutta, 2000), We have had to face one crisis after another-ordeals both of body and spirit. No wonder, the poems in this volume also turn round the axis of the ordeal of consciousness, to recall a Henry James phrase. Thus, this book is a sort of sequel to The Aching Vision.
