Bibhu Padhi's poems take place within the framework of home, the ancient Orissan town of Cuttack and the round of births and deaths within the circle of family and friends. The poems bring this world alive with an extraordinary intensity, investing the everyday with visionary depth. James Merrill praised Padhi's first collection, Going to the Temple, as 'lucid, engaging' and these qualities are shown to even greater extent in this collection. To be part of Padhi's world is to share a pure, rich treasure.
