Classically wrought in the ways of the sages, the beautifully penned and much-anticipated second print of Ponder Awhile shares the complexities of life as a simple and accessible dose of spirit and soul stuff. Author and poet Mohit K. Misra leaves no stone unearthed as he dons the robes of a mystic, though is plainspoken, lilting, and at times, playful with his language and words. Written as Dohas or couplets, each stanza of the fifty-one poems found in this collection chases the glow of a new dawn of world enlightenment. Straightforward, uncomplicated and wise, with titles such as "Mother Earth, " "Married to the Light, " "Charity, " and "Peace, " the author examines and dissects the frailty of life, the inevitability of death and the most tender part of the stalk and the root. These poems are necessary, irresistible and evolved. Courageous in their simple message, God and His many faces are pressed into the window box for all to see and celebrate. The poet encourages introspection, deliberation, mediation and the search for deeper meaning. His poems of praise, poems of contemplation and poems of provocation sing God's praises, His justice and His grace. Knowledge leads to understanding, which leads to peace and, finally, to love. It is what the world needs-a little of God's love, the fabric, the sheer essence; the gems of the universe unfold on these pages. And we are, as readers, better for these gifts.

I found that this book did make me stop and ponder awhile. It is like the calm in the eye of the storm. I found reading it a kind of literary meditation. It is thoughtful, intelligent, and uplifting, not only do I recommend it, I prescribe it. Trust me, I'm a doctor.

Pondering and wondering on the nature of man and God - One with a thousand questions and the other with a thousand names and answers-This young poet reminds one of Khalil Gibran witha touch af Tagore. We are sure that his delicious "Ponder Awhile" will give to the seeker of truth a longing for it and a taste of who we really are.

Mohit Mishra has presented a garland of poems sensitizing deep thoughts in worldly reality. The sifting thoughts and emotions seeking out subtle nuances is a work of great mind.
This work can be sustained by deep courage, commitment, daring and restraint. It is possible by people only who love and care for people.
It is with deep sense of fulfillment and urge to read again.
