CITY TIMES AND OTHER POEMS is a beautifully written collection of poems which will surely refresh your mood. The collection of poems is based on different aspects of life and things we see, hear and feel around us. The language used is very simple and lucid. One can easily connect themselves to each poem. My favourite poem among all of them is City Times. The language and expressions used by Vihang are commendable. You'll feel light once you start reading his poems because his poems speak the reality more than he himself as a person. It is a must read for all poetry lovers. You will simply love it. All the best to Vihang for his upcoming books and I would definitely love to read his works in future.
