“Vihang A Naik’s City Times and Other Poems uses a minimalist style of poetry, with imagistic uses crystallising into direct turn of phrases. The interesting aspect of Indian Poetry in English today is the fusion of styles ranging from the narrative descriptive, the lyric, epic to minimalist use of language and imagery. Naik’s collection under review uses stark images which capture moments in a familiar city, the scapes which the poet captures in moments of poetic revelation.”.. -Rev of City Times & Other Poems by Vihang A.

I found the book, as a whole, to be confounding. What is the message? What am I to take away? Should I just treat it as a confused experience, like meeting a wild stranger in the midst of a conversation? Overall, I do intend to use his poems, especially “Midnight City,” as inspiration and as a reminder that, while it may take a few readings to get the flow and the meaning, Naik’s poetry is meaningful.”.. -Rev of City Times & Other Poems by Vihang A.

“The poems themselves are long enough to convey images and thoughts, yet short enough to facilitate those necessary pauses for contemplation. The general mood of the collection is somber, yet accepting. We are asked to stare into the face of our fleeting existence and be okay with that. We are asked to celebrate life’s temporary nature. We are compelled to accept that we have no influence over the natural way of the universe and that we are ultimately just a blip on its radar.

“The poet is well versed in linguistic deviations chiefly of graphological deviation. He discards the rules of graphology and punctuation chiefly to heighten the effect. Sometimes, he writes the word in small letters in order to euphemistically ridicule or elevate the importance while at the other time, he capitalizes the words to lambast or mirror the over heightened effect of the same word.” – Dr. Shaleen Kumar Singh[founder / editor] .

“If I am not speaking about “self portrait” then I am seriously undermining the developing idea of getting an image personified into the lines/words. The poem talks about the recognition of the “I” that finally “wake up” and makes the dominant effort “to see” the inner power hidden in “my-Self”. The discovery is kept hidden in between the lines so much so that you end up ignoring the blank in between the two pages. The last line marks the foot of the second page and ends without any punctuation- “discovered beyond thought” – Shreya Chatterjee .
