"Sandesh's concerns range wide from love to racism, war to conservation, from the Easter bombing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the poems stand out both for the ideas and the skill with which they are expressed. In 'Panthera Pardus Koheda?', we see strains of Alan Brownjohn’s 'We Are Going To See The Rabbit' as Sandesh ironically considers the effects of Sri Lanka’s safari culture and loss of habitat on the leopard population. Classical History is a tender and frustrated exploration of unrequited love. Chess with my Roommate cleverly uses the rules of chess to comment on issues of colour. Writers willing to experiment and give form and expression to the fears and imaginings, the opinions and desires of young people. Writers who are passionate and intelligent and committed to their craft. In Sandesh, I see this passion and the drive, the deep and sensitive engagement with the world around him." -- Vaidehi Perera
