About the Book


Taming the Tides is a collection of Dilip Mohapatra's new and selected poems which though rooted to his intensely individualistic mind-scape , are resonant with human emotions, confirmations and contradictions, hopes and aspirations; at times with a sprinkling of humour while at times seriously contemplative. The Anthology contains fifty of his new poems and fifty older poems that have been published in reputed literary journals worldwide.
