"I love the Punjabiness of Amarjit Chandan's poetry,
the images, the feelings, the evocations of
a time and place. They have emotion, action, thought,
and are, on the whole, quite moving."

Kamla Kapoor

A letter from John Berger to Amarjit Chandan
upon reading his poem "To Father"

Amarjit,

I find your poem so beautiful ... like an avenue in a city I was wanting to reach. Thank you for it. And tell your father I thank him.
I send you this notice. The exhibition will be over, but the book (probably better than the exhibition) is very special. Perhaps we even could write about it together.
May I hold both your hands?

John
