Aayam is a young prodigy, a visionary poet blessed with great creative strength whose poems read perfect though he exercises the art spontaneously. He follows his own model of artistic creation. CLOUDS is its evidence I know he will be categorized, very shortly, among a very original and successful English poet in Nepal.
