Provoking Hearts and Minds

Poetry has a way of moving us to depths that can be deemed surreal but is now falling within the realms of Naturalism. There are few things in life that can take us through a range of emotions in such a short span as the magical world of poetry. Vishwas explores this world through his poems with a nuanced depth and insight into life.

Vishwas Anand of Bangalore is a published poet and writer. A student at IIM-Kozhikode, Vishwas muses upon life and the little details that make people and the world around him tick. He believes that life charts its course as a product of one’s actions and feels that the human mind can be hypnotized into seeking what is good for it, regardless of the concomitant desires. Poems are a way of taking one on a path of solace where journeys are sketched to bridge the conflicting gaps in society.

His poems have been published in journals: The Copperfield Review, The River, The Nexuss, Four And Twenty and featured in online websites like One Shot Poetry, Jingle Poetry and Poets United. He was awarded ‘Poem of the Week’ at Jingle Poetry for his poem: Stilling Journey. He is also an Ezine Articles expert author. His articles and poems have appeared on GingerChai and Aquillrelle. He currently writes at his own blog column as well.
