Three things will be like rain falling on mountains. It will be useless; wealth, education and a good partner are the three things. If these qualities are bestowed upon a gifted and talented person, he or she can work wonders. Master Alleyne is one among those gifts, which mother Earth has presented to us.
Ever since, he has surprised me with many unimaginable endeavors like founding “Heart4Earth” and planting lakhs of trees through a novel project called Greenathon. Another marvel has happened. He has written a beautiful novelette, which is really praiseworthy. I read the story with great interest.
It is the plot of a lost mother, which depicts the life of many mothers who toil hard for children and later become unwanted objects. It is not just like that. This book has many messages for the young and old. The thread of the novel is intertwined with climate justice, which is a hot topic today.
“The poets’ eye in a fine frenzy rolling
doth glance from heaven to Earth,
From Earth to heaven….”
Yes, Alleyne’s eye is glancing on lush green areas of life. No doubt, we can expect many more wonderful creations from his promising pen. I wish him all the best.
