This book explores the nature of creativity. The essays in this book look at how poetry comes alive and resonates with meanings only when it speaks to us, and we listen to its dhvani; and how great works of fiction create convincing worlds, but often transcend realism. They use irony to explore the paradoxical nature of reality, or vastu dhvani where events take on symbolic overtones, or epiphany – moments of revelation and insight. Also exploring the field of creative writing, another essay guides aspiring writers how to shape their stories with the right choice of “points of view”.

About the Author

The author turned to creative writing after he retired as the Head of the Department of English from K C College, Mumbai. The Book Review called his debut novel, The Suragi Tree (2006), “a delightful novel,” and found its “absorbing plot . . . its relaxed and relaxing pace, its suave control . . . simply breathtaking.”

About his second novel, Manu in Kishkindha (2015) – an evocative exploration of Indian mythology – the ABNA Publisher Weekly Reviewer said, “Readers will be swept away in the non-stop action.” Kaviteya Odu (Reading Poetry), his first book in Kannada, won the Karnataka Sahitya Academy Award for literary criticism in 2013. Dhvani and Epiphany, his latest book, is all set to take you on an exploration into the world of poetry, fiction and drama and an appreciation of the world of architecture.
