About the BookThe Complete Poetical Works of Ajit Singh Sikka highlights the poetry of the Indian Soil and it seems to be the Light of Great Morning. Dr. Sikka writes as an Indian. He surely performs the vital function of a poet being the voice of the county for the people. He writes in rhythm and rhyme, which add greatly to aesthetic pleasure and takes us into a world quite different from that of prose or everyday life. His literary and artistic qualities will save this poetry from decay. Dr. Sikka’s poetry is running upon pleasant feet, sometimes swift and sometimes slow.
