Book Description

About the Author
Bijay Kishore Sundar Ray was born in 19 and belongs to Bhubaneswar. He joined the Indian Administrative Service in 1972 and retired in the rank of Chief Secretary to the government of Chhattisgarh. Ray's love for poetry is an integral part of his existential quest. Most of his poems relate to love, loneliness, human relationships, resistance to oppression, search for freedom and an endless longing for a suffering humanity. A marriage between a lyrical tide and emotional turbulence characterizes his poetic thought process. Tm influenced by the poets such as TS Eliot, Stephen Spender, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, Octavia Paz and Pablo Neruda", says Ray. From Silence to Silence" carries Ray's poetic process to new heights. He pays tributes to truth, sincerity, beauty and genuine human relationships. At the same time, doesn't hesitate to attack the commercial face of existence where personal gains overshadow feelings for humanity. Apart from being a poet, Ray is also a novelist, short story writer and an essayist. His passion for writing remains unabated. So far he has written 25 books.

Ray lives in Raipur (Chhattisgarh) where he intends to pursue his literary activities.

The footsteps of my blood", wrote the poet Octavia Paz. It's a poet's intensity that stirs up consciousness flowing through the psycho-physical process. I write poetry to have that feeling, to eliminate the spectre of irrelevance and to have a creative life running counter to the destructive forces of emptiness. In fact, I'm passionate about poetry and remain spontaneously committed to its beauty.

In my poetry collection, "From Silence To Silence", I've revealed myself to things I hate and love. While the commercial face of human existence intensely despise, the innate goodness of human beings amid tears and turbulence, attracts me all the time. My longing for silence in a cacophonous world is a value system I intensely cherish. But the next moment could be a turbulent one when I break my silence to attack injustice and falsehood. My poetry in fact, is a vision of my life to tell the truth. I take this opportunity to express my thanks to all my friends and well wishers whose love and relentless support to my commitment to creativity encouraged me to explore new heights.
