Exit 30 is a fun read. Something to trigger debates between friends and surely great company for those who like some time alone, with a book of many shades.
This is a creative pursuit that penned 30 poems under 30 randomly picked subjects by both poets - Shamik & Seema.
Each poem is a short film/story capturing the essence of human existence and emotions. It is a unique 'jugalbandi' between the two writers giving distinctive twists to each subject, experimenting with the lucidity of perception, visualization and approach.
Shamik Moitra :
Shamik considers himself a true wanderer, who delights in the journey of life as it waxes and wanes through infinite variety the universe presents us with. An eclectic student of history, economics, pure sciences and philosophy, when he is not busy earning a living as a professional venture capital and private equity investor, Shamik engages in discussing, writing and analysing human endeavour and zeitgeist.
A British national of Indian origin, Shamik believes in synthesizing the best thoughts and influences from his Indian heritage with composite western enlightenment expressed in principles of democracy, freedom of action and market capitalism. He does not subscribe to any specific dogma or ideological position, but is probably best described in political leaning as a libertarian, free market and free will votary.
These distinctive influences inform his writing style and form. They also find expression in his poetry, a passion nurtured since early youth, but hitherto unpublished in book form. Among several poets, Shamik considers Tennyson, Rilke, Carol Ann Duffy, Tagore and Jibanananda Das his chief inspirations.
Shamik currently leads iFarm, a private enterprise at the confluence of principal capital investing and developing cutting edge human skills through emerging technology related higher education. He has travelled and worked extensively in leadership roles across Europe, Indo-Pacific and the US. He is currently also giving final touches to a non-fiction book on Public Policy with a focus on Defence Economics.
Shamik is married to Seema and this is their first poetry composition in tandem.
Seema Raghunath :
