The Wheel Eternal Written by: Gursaran Singh Saran
Translated by: Nirwan Singh
The Wheel Eternal was originally published in Punjabi (the Author’s mother tongue) as sme dee bairr in 2000. It contains poems written during 1980-2000 while the Poet was living in USA. Dealing with wide-ranging subjects, themes, and issues, the poems embody concern for the human condition that encompasses emotional, biological, sociological, psychological, metaphysical, material, and spiritual aspects of Life.
The Author’s crusading belligerence springs from his deep faith in Gurbani (Guru’s Revealed Word), and his own mind is the battlefield where he is constantly engaged in combat with the forces of evil, immorality, and ugliness—which have now overwhelmed the modern world. The poet feels that the inner consciousness, reason, mind, and understanding of the modern man are not trained spiritually. He has depicted today’s religion and its (mal-)practices as a mongrel collection of outdated rituals and rules. In his experience, spirituality deepens the bond among humans, vis-à-vis the Fatherhood of God and brotherhood of man.
This work can be placed among the Metaphysical Poets’ by virtue of the profundity of its content such as the readers would find irresistibly fascinating.About the Author
