Book Description

GOLDEN WONDER is an anthology of English poems authored by one and only Praveen Kumar, a bilingual poet and senior police officer from Karnataka.

Praveen Kumar with his more than three decades of government service at senior levels and as a poet of twelve published collections and as an author of five volumes on matters of governance and administration is a familiar face in Indian intellectual circuits. His more than 30 contributions on governance and administration to prominent national dailies like The Hindu, Indian Express, Deccan Herald and Times of India and other periodicals and journals were extremely popular and often sensational by their innovative unorthodox thoughts.


Born in Mangalore as the eldest son of Shree R.D.Suvarna and Smt. B.Sarojini, Praveen Kumar graduated in Science from St. Aloysius College, Mangalore, going on to obtain post-graduate degree in Literature from Mysore University. He also holds post-graduate diploma in Business Management as well as Higher Diploma in Cooperative Management. In his student days he was a prize-winning orator and writer. He lives in Bangalore with his very own Golden Wonder; son, Pratheek and Smt. Jayashree. He is a familiar face in national seminars and TV networks in India as a Poet and thinker.


Stemming from his varied academic background, are the lively far-ranging interests that have impelled him to write on subjects as diverse as matters of public interest and poetry, striking the perfect balance between the pursuance of vocation and avocation.

COMMENTS ON POEMS  IN "GOLDEN WONDER" FROM OTHER POETS
 
 Ron on "Golden Wonder" 

 
Comment: I see that you are master of love poetry. You have a great range of vocabulary to describe your passion for love. It might have been better if you had posted one poem at a time. Most readers will not take the time to read multiple poems. I can see why you received acclaim for your poetry.
 
Lorraine Colon on "Celestial Bliss"
 
Comment: Beautiful poem, but sadly, fate does not ensure that we find each other. How many people die a lonely death never having met the one who would complete their life. There is no guarantee in life, not on anything. All we can do is hope for the best.
