This gentleman Hemant Shesh is a man of immense talent and is a genius. It is amazing to find how a man could have such a versatility and excellence in every field he has touched! I have known several poets, writers, artists etc. but they have worked excellently in their own single field. However Shesh has left his indelible footprints on every single field he has worked on - poetry, writing, painting, criticism, editing,....
Well done Acharya Hemant Shesh. We look forward to many many of your new poetry collections and other books.
