Amritsar, March 17
Japan-based Punjabi poet Parminder Sodhifs collection of poems eJheel Wang Rukof hit the stand recently.

It is an anthology of 40 poems, which is well received by Punjabi readers. Dedicated to his close friends, the book begins with eardasf, which is different from the religious one. However, this ardas was penned by the poet himself, summing up the poetic theme of book.

The anthology gets its name from its sixth poem drawing inspiration from lake. It advises not to be impatient and hurried while it does not pay to be scared. He stresses the point by saying that you may have won in life for umpteen times then why to be scared of defeat. He says everything in this world is fleeting and same is the case with human life.

Among the immigrant Punjabi litterateurs, Parminder has carved a niche for himself. His creations assume significance in the context that he is among the minuscule bunch of writers based in Asia unlike majority of them residing in Europe and America.

The first poem gTusi Vasde Rahoh shows humility and humbleness of the poet. Without caring about his own conveniences the poet demanded wellbeing of gTusih, which translates into eyouf.

He does not clear who the second person is and it is left on imagination of readers and their discretion to infer the second person.

Other anthologies of poems of the prolific writer are Utsav, Tere Jaan To Baad, Ik Chidi Te Mahanagar and Sanjhe Sah Landiya. His only prose came in the shape of book on philosophy gChini Darshan: Taovadh. It presents school of thought propounded by famous Chinese philosopher Tao.

He translated Japanese stories, poems and some religious book in Punjabi and widened the scope of Punjabi readers. The books are gAdhunik Japani Kahaniyah, gSachai De Aar Parh, Ajoki Japani Kavita, Japani Haiku Shairi, Dhampad and Gita. He edited gSansar Prasidh Muhavreh.

On an average, tone and tenor of poems are positive and exhorts readers never to lose heart.
