About the Book
Every poem is so tremendous and so touching and piercing, like a sharp arrow. These are among the best poems composed by a Nepali scholar in English.

The collection of hundred poems…..is a window into Dr. Joshi’s life as a matured and awakened man.
- Deepak Shimkhada, PhD, professor of Asian Art and Religion, artist, art historian, author
The poems celebrate diversity and fluidity encountered at different moments of life. I appreciate Joshi's sense of rhythm and his use of the English language in this collection of poems.

Full of poetic insights and epiphanic illuminations…..the aesthetic beauty and humanistic sagacity of the “hundred flowers” will receive appreciation and love of many readers over a long period of time.
