...
It is I, someday
Will read it singing
Or haltingly.
It is I, in insolence
Will change some.

Will laugh
At the way
The words are written

Nevertheless, won't read
The way one should.

Altered readings
Can't ruin the book
The essentials
Remain


Beyond the immediate, Nand Babu's poetry evolves as a metaphor of social resistance at the cross-section of myths, history and political reality. It is an aesthetic resistance premised on a linguistic sensibility which is inclusive; psychologically engaging, socially responsible and politically conscious. In invoking a multiplicity of responses his poetry invites the reader to participate in and witness the present, thus ensuring a complexity of awareness, necessary for ushering in a progressive future.
MANAGER PANDEY

Poetry is the celebration of hope amidst the debris of despair. A vital constituent of humane heritage it nurtures beauty, sustains truth and innovates Life. The ambience that Nand Babu's poetry evokes takes its sustenance from his deep rootedness in the native milieu; drawing on this inheritance he weaves a world of words that is at once stringent and sustaining. Despite his low profile Nand Babu's poetry makes profound statement and in the process it becomes an emulatory aesthetic milestone.
The English rendering of his poems would not only extend their reach but would also make them more significant.
