‘…But to confess my everlasting love for mankind’ is what the poet speaks through ‘God is in the Jungle’, a collection of fifty-one poems written during his short spell in Mumbai. The poems are based upon love and life in wilderness. Always in search of a noble company of happy people, he tries to look inside for the solution of pain. He attains the highest bliss by glorifying his beloved, his departed parents, his superannuated teacher, and the industrious ants. The poet befriends the wandering gypsies, Indian farmers, the Zumba dancers of Latin America, the atheists and agnostics and the mysterious ghosts who attend his classroom teaching. The tussle still continues in the form of a Maratha march of protest marching towards the Celestial Fortress.
