The Painted Verse , as the name suggests, is an amalgamation of poetry and painting, two different, yet complementary arts.
The book comprises 50 compositions. Each composition in this book is enriched by the coming together of these powerful mediums of expression. The poet and the painter weave a rich fabric of colours and words, inspired by nature and its beauty, love, pain, joy, and the innermost feelings of humankind.
