Sanjeev Bansal is a young and an emerging poet, writer and author of the new novel The Taste of Midnight. The novel is spine chiller/ mystery themed. It’s a tale about a man who battles with his psyche and heart to substantiate himself unadulterated against his female closest companion’s affirmations. He writes out his experiences delving into his subconscious trying to unknot his mind, heart and soul’s emotions. Laced in the strings of the world weaved out of his creative ability, he penned down the mysteries of his sentimental specialty.
Sanjeev Bansal’s exquisite poems are epistles to the past, reflections upon the future and heartbreaking meditations upon the metaphysics of daily transcendence. One of the most subtly imaginative poets, Bansal bravely transcribes his love for the hilly terrains of Shimla into the charged intersections of love and rejection, nature and religion, loss and renewal. His poems are lucid snapshots developed in a subtle amalgam of memory and intuition. Lyrical and linguistically inventive and yet faithful to poesy of European gloom, Bansal investigates complex personal history, family and romantic love in carefully sculpted lines, thereby making his poetry an odyssey at once metaphorically and emphatically real.
