WORDS: Wisdom Originates in Reflection on the Divine vis-à-vis the Secular
by Dr SS Bhatti
As its title suggests, WORDS, is an unusual book, primarily because it has been authored by an architect whose amazing versatility imparts a freshness that should inspire the readers to try their own hand at exploring, like he has himself done, the fairyland of English.
This book is a four-in-one anthology of “Stray Musings” [Palpable ponderings on workaday experience], “Dictionary of de-ACRONYM-isation” [Acronyms-in-Reverse], “New Coinages” [Novel words inspired by exciting changes brought about by incredible high-tech changes in lifestyles], and “Poems” [Ontological odysseys into the epistemology of words and the form of Sonnets]. The verses in the “Poems” thus draw their purpose, meaning, and expression from the subject-matter suggested by the letters of the word that forms the poetized theme-titles such as Psychology, Philosophy, Engineering, and so on.
So inspiring are the contents of this thought-provoking book that the readers are bound to be persuaded to make “WORDS” a life-long literary companion to show them their native talent and to motivate them to develop it to full blossom as an artistic expression of their own unique creativity!
