This long contemplation of love spun out in short-line quatrains embraces eros, breath of life and the more high-minded idealization of human romantic love drawing upon western culture from ancient Greek mythology to the very contemporary aspects of torrid desire.
John. B. Lee, Poet Laureate of Brantford, Canada.

These quatrains are on diverse facets of love, including physical and metaphysical. Some quatrains define love and some love’s outgrowth. In some quatrains the first lines rhyme with the second and in some with the third or the fourth. This variance is to avoid monotony and also to suggest that love itself does not embody any set rules. These witty or satirical quatrains articulate the thoughts and observations of a sage on an epigrammatical landscape of a notable individuality. Where there is any need, the sage draws on French and Latin expressions.
Stephen Gill, Poet Laureate of Anstead, Adjunct Professor, E-A U Canada

What is real love? There are so many variations of this most beautiful phenomenon in life: a child’s love, motherly love, young love, the love of a married couple, the transcendental love, the love to animals and plants, the love to all beautiful things as such. Maybe love will even break if we try to define it precisely, because we can only approach love in concentric circles. Probably we can describe love only with the resources of poetry, as it is done in Arbind Choudhary’s sensitive and accurate way. He shows that love can only exist when it is not egoistical, when we have no eye to one’s own interest.  The poems, one truer than the other, one more beautiful than the other, implant love in our heart. So poetically described, love is never lost.
Kurt.F.Svatek, Austria
