ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sanjay Chitranshi is an alumnus of IIT Roorkee. Sanjay has always believed that life should not be lived just for the sake of living. He loves to experiment with life and experience it in its different hues. In the process, Poetic Penetrations happened and in it, he has tried to explore the outer world as well as the inner one through an interesting journey interspersed with a variety of experiences.
The protagonist is about to turn forty, belongs to a rich and affluent family, lives a luxurious life but feels discontented because he believes that the world is ruled by fake moral values and suffocating bondages. He leaves everything and migrates to Kolkata to live a creative and meaningful life. He goes through many funny experiences in Kolkata in his quest to know what the real meaning of life is. He meets Debolina, an upscale prostitute, who loves to listen to his poems while making love. She tells him about many truths of life and finally, he has the panacea for his confusions and doubts.
Poetic Penetrations is not something about poems, it about a man’s life who wants to become a poet but cant. The only question which bounds him is “What to do next?.” Sanjay Chitranshi wrote down what he believed in “life should not be lived just for the sake of living” through the novel's character. You will laugh, smile and make different faces while reading Poetic Penetrations, but at the end, you will not be disappointed.
