AbstractLUTZE: Krishna, do you remember the day when you wrote this poem, and how it all started?
SRIKRISHNA: Yea, i remember that day when I was just eighteen. I was wandering near around my village. I was full of poetic dreams in my mind. I read Bendre and Kuvempu1 and I was very much impressed by the poets and I was so mad about the nature and I was dreaming the old romantic ideas in my mind. But unexpectedly I read the modern poems at that time and I was disappointed by the romantic conceptions and I washed the romantic conceptions from my mind. I was searching for new images in my mind at that time.
