Devesh Alakh is a contemporary Hindi poet and the author of Kuch Pal Apne Pal and Khwab Adhkhuli Aankhon Ke. His poems cover themes such as satire, romance, beauty of nature and human frailties. His poetry is characterised by simple language and images strung together to force the readers to go on to a journey to the unexplored recesses of the human mind. While his succinct style of poetry easily connects with readers, his satire is declamatory and profound, forcing the reader to think and ponder. A collection of short stories is forthcoming.
