When the prolific Indian poet of 43 published books, Nikhil Parekh was Interviewed this week by the Australian Arts Editor Pamela Faye, the young poet of 26 years of age divulged the secrets of a true poet's world. Nikhil speaks of the accolade of honor he received from the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, for his recent Anti Terrorism poetry book, "Life Overrules Death".
The poet talks of inspiration that comes from, a beggar's outstretched arms, or the ethereal dropping of a pin in a standstill environment, evoking the uncanny desire to rush words to barren pages of parchment, belonging to yesteryear.
Nikhil Parekh holds the ability to entice words from the hidden depths of dictionaries, to portray the frolicking laughter of children, or the intensity of belief from distant vision, carrying timeless tales from Shakespeare's era.
This unique poetic style has publishers in the UK, USA, and Canada, awarding achievement/felicitation certificates of honor to this young Indian poet. Nikhil Parekh is refreshing the English Language from the depth of passion belonging to so few in today's clipped and ever transient society of flashing messages.
This young poet is taking the literary world by storm, having created the longest poem ever written, 7,900 words. A poem titled, "Only as Life".... portraying life as only the diversity of life itself is capable of delivering. Nikhil Parekh's beliefs are as strong as the poet's voice that forever challenges the world to gather verse to their hearts, and hear.
At the age of 26 years, this poet is set to leave his mark on the 21st Century, and beyond.
