Bio Data
My name is Dev Datta Datta (Aka Devi Datta Giri) and I am 53 years old. My education has been in English medium in schools in India and in Swaziland(Southern Africa). I graduated from Bombay University in commerce and did my specialisation in international trade.
Having led an uneventful life following the normal 9am to 6apm Monday to Saturday work routine for last 25 years of unrewarding career,I found that some inner fire was being snuffed out. I recollect my days waking up and penning my thoughts rather in an undefined poetical form , following my own style.
Infact it has been now past 5 months that I started wring poetry and conserving and saving them up ( don’t know how many of my peened poetry is now lost in those pieces of papers) and have posted anything between 50 to 60 poems,. All these are flow from my heart and written in extempore and yet unpublished hoping one day a suitable anthology of same is made for publishing and for all people to read all over. My range is wide, from spiritual , emotive , to dark moods, deep love of passion you name it all have been covered.I hope I am following the voice of my heart after all
