Gliding Ripples, T. Vasudeva Reddyas sixth poetry book, is an outstanding collection of appealing and thought-provoking poems ranging from village life to wider themes of national and international spirit and thought. His lyrical and nature poems such as aWest Haven Beacha and aThe Rosea are indeed masterpieces of incomparable aesthetic beauty and poetic imagery.

His brief stay in America inspires him to express his feelings on the rich scenic splendour and the American way of life in poems such as aSherwood Park, a aLiving Word, a aOh America!a and aNiagara Falls.a Poetry lovers starved of good poetry can really enjoy the poems of T. Vasudeva Reddy and his poetic capsules in the haiku stream.
