‘Circus of life’ by Brig kartar Singh contains four parts. Part-1 has twelve poems form birth to death as applicable in twenty first century. Part-2 has eight poems on some problems facing the Nation today. Part-3 has seven poems on some aspect of life and time today. Part-4 has five modern short stories which are relevant today for contemporary generation.
The author has done full justice to his poetic talent to describe William Shakespeare’s “Seven Stages of Life” as applicable today. The poems of National problems are so relevant and appropriate that the Government need to take
notice of these problems and remedies. Life and time poems are light and humourous and make interesting reading.
The five short stories are mix of modern times and contemporary psychological aspects of love and life. The stories ‘Beauty and Brain’ and ‘Made for Each Other” make very interesting reading.
I recommend the book to be read by all English literature fans and be kept in most school and college libraries. I also wish good luck to Brig Kartar Singh for his future Ventures.
