Picked this book up at random from a store at Delhi Book Fair. I had no idea about the author or about this book, bought it totally on a hunch and a mention that it was shortlisted for Booker Prize 1997. Of course, the title The Underground Man and it’s cover looked interesting enough to me to give this book a shot.
Darker the night, Brighter she shines,Blacker the world,She blooms like rose,Soft is her heart,Sharp are her eyes,She can see through the lies,Wise or disguise?Years of tears,From Lure and entice,Cleared the cloudsFrom the sky of life,Never so sure,Never so alive,She’s happy this time,On this Valentines.
