Love and Romance

Anjani Pandey, the very name with all the romance associated with it, confuses at first. However, Poet?s Note, added to this beautiful and delightful collection of poems, reveals the complete personality of Anjani Pandey from his birth to growth, his bearing and learning. He feels blessed to have been born, having been brought up and educated in the enlightened and cultural atmosphere of the historical-religious city of Allahabad where his mental make-up developed. It is against this background that we begin our delightfully fresh journey into the fine and rough raw material which inspires the sensitive soul of a real poet. This is what we experience in Of Love, Life and Lamentations about which we richly learn from the honest confessions of Anjani?s poetic venture with all its freedom of language, style, spirit and content without any pretension and illusion. We hope that Anjani will continue with this bold honesty and initiative for a new variety of harvest in Indian English Poetry. About the Poet - Hailing from the poetic city of Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, home of many literati from Indian literature, Anjani Pandey spent his formative years at the Kendriya Vidyalaya school and later completed his Bachelors degree in English Literature from Ewing Christian college. He went on to pursue his Masters degree in English Literature from University of Allahabad and later added another feather in his academic cap when he successfully completed his second Masters degree in Business and Taxation laws from the prestigious NALSAR University in Hyderabad. He qualified for the Civil Service Exams in 2009 and went on to become an officer in the Indian Revenue Service. He is currently posted as the Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax in Pune. Apart from his keen interest towards writing, his hobbies include reading, and listening to old Bollywood numbers. His poems have been published in international journals like the Taj Mahal Review and Research Scholar. He stays in Pune with his wife Kavita and daughter Anwita.
