ABOUT THE BOOK: Reading through the collection of poems 'Veils of Darkness' one wishes that one knew more about the poet than he is a Secunderabadee and a non-academic.

Short, unembellished, almost stark in their purity (no metaphor, no simile to speak of), the poems collected here address some important aspects of human life in a universal fashion. Here man is pitted against the devil, the two often changing roles. So the questions of good versus evil, light versus darkness, virtue versus calumny—all those much-maligned binarities—are once again raised. 

Simplicity, honesty, straight-forwardness, a lack of self-awareness—these are some of the characteristics that have gone into the making of these poems. Ezra Pound who advised young writers to shun the abstract and embrace the concrete images also said that honesty is a kind of intelligence. And there is a plenty of that intelligence in the poems of Abdul Jawad.

Both thematically and stylistically Abdul Jawad’s poems sound neo-classical. They take us to a world that we have left behind, that is to say they make us look at our own world from a different perspective. For a generation tired of modernist discourse this kind of writing should be a welcome change.


Preface for the book is by Dr. K. V. Tirumalesh, Indian poet, novelist, translator, critic, essayist, author and retired professor from Central Institute of English & Foreign Languages (CIEFL), Hyderabad, India. For his collection of poems Akshaya Kavya (Infinite Embers) in Kannada (2010), he was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award.

ABOUT THE POET: Mohammed Abdul Jawad is a poet, writer and blogger. Reading through his writings one wishes that one knew more about the author than he is a non-academic who made a humble beginning earning his living as a retail salesman, and currently cherishes his successful career working in a pharmaceutical company. 

Besides this, he is a beBee brand ambassador for beBee Affinity Social Network S.L., which is a successful personal branding platform. On this platform, he regularly posts his short, straightforward articles that make us look at our own world from a different perspective. Born in Secunderabad, India, he is an old student of St. Patrick's High School, Secunderabad, India.
