My World Within

Kapil Sibal

Senior Advocate & Member, Rajya Sabha

In the words of poet-lyricist Javed Akhtar, “If poetry is only emotions and feelings, it affects our minds just for a short while. If it is only intellect and wisdom it doesn’t touch our hearts. Kapil Sibal’s poetry is a synthesis of emotions and intellect. His poems are felt thoughts.”

On the day, when the book was released, the author had said, “Some thoughts in my previous book ‘I Witness’ had something to do in my past. This one essentially is my present.”

It is a compilation of 66 verses composed on his cellphone during time snatched in between his travels and other obligations as a Minister, he writes about “metre and rhythm central to life.” With varied themes ranging from love, desire, friendship, world economy, terrorism and international affairs, the poems take the reader on a path to discover a universe that is so perfect in its imperfection.

Wit, satire, humor and awareness of the dynamic world are but a few emotions that weave a rhythmic story, setting ‘My World Within’ apart from the others.
