Aug 11, 2008"Roasted Poems" "A Hot Pot of Roasted Poems" is a collection of poems by young aspiring poet Rohitash Chandra. There is an edge, energy and absence of artifice about them that reflects a raw talent. Subsequent exposure and experience can only enhance and sharpen these emerging insights. The diverse subjects explored be they love, nature, childhood, philosophy, peace or the humdrum of the every day are the product of an engaging mind. The title is a reference to the recipe Rohitash offers for peace on the planet which features prominently in this work. This eclectic offering is a first published Initiative by the poet himself. His evolution and growth in this genre will be fascinating to chart because Rohitash has much to say as well as share." Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi, Human Rights Advocate and former Vice President of Fiji. "Being able to see things from such a perspective requires one to be able to experience all these emotions and Rohitash believes the... More > young generation in Fiji has that capability to feel these emotions and to be able to put their thoughts to paper." The Fiji Times, Sunday June 17th, 2007 "The abstract quality and inner depth present in the excerpt of the poem titled `Assume Being Free from Wars' would incline most people to ponder on its strong theme and the power this poem has to bring about change. Such words are not merely written but meant which is why the art of poetry is not confined to genius or poets alone. " Siddharta Sharma The Fiji Sun "...his curiosity about life and questions about the existence of the human race have provided a lot of the fuel for his artistic expressions." Amelia Vunileba The Fiji Times "Rohitash portrays in his poems, a rich array of diverse themes where he touches the emotional, moral and spiritual fibre of one's being." Reshma Dutta Hobart, Australia Currently Lecturer at The University of Fiji "He's a poet of promise and sensitivity and has written life anchored in anguish, and of the joy of living with youthful freshness and honesty. Rohitash Chandra shows a deep commitment to poetry. " Satendra Nandan The University of Fiji "Rohitash Chandra is a young poet who writes with feeling. There is a humane quality to his poetry, particularly in his tackling of sensitive subjects such as the 2000 Fiji coup, the recent devastating tsunami or a sugarcane farmer whose lease has not been renewed. A sense of hope and celebration of life and love, despite an awareness of pain and suffering pervade his poems. In a sense, if you will, the poet flings his kite up in the air and sees where it goes, like the young lad in the poem `King of the Sky'. Rohitash is to be commended for his commitment to poetry, not only visible in this book but in his editorship of The Blue Fog Journal and his previous publications of poetry. While he writes about universal themes, his images and sensibility are also very much about the rain, soil, sea and harvests of Fiji." Dr Kavita Nandan Lecturer in Literature, editor of `Stolen Worlds: Fijiindian Fragments' The University of the South Pacific< Less
