    A foreword by Bodo Vespaciano
    (A Cuban origin Poet-Artist, U.S.A)

    To arm our love, and ensure that it lives on forever, in other words, to safeguard a world of beauty, wisdom, duty and peace for the benefit of our children, our posterity, we should understand, first and foremost, that we are warriors in a struggle for survival…we have been engaged in battle. We have been forced, by those who hate and destroy, to fight in order to defend our values, our principles, our truth, which we consider to be Universal Truth…we have not invented this “truth”, and we have not shaped it or molded it to fit our designs. We, the ones who love, surely have applied ourselves to serve the Almighty and by doing so, we have followed the path of that invariable reality

    Rarely have I encountered, in my quests, artists, writers, musicians or poets who focus on the elementary, who cling to reality and who are willing to fight for the survival and ultimate triumph of those who love…

    Few times have I had the joy of reading a collection of poems that have enlightened me and that have fulfilled my need to know, to profoundly understand that love can be a force, and not only an idyllic emotion that serves beauty.…LOVE is a revolutionary concept in the world today…yet, I am not saying that Dr. Ashok is a revolutionary, but that he is a Revolutionary, and his poetry shows it…I sincerely believe that he understands, as well as I do, that art is a weapon. Tholana has recognised that his love, for the human race, for the planet, for the Universe, for the Almighty, has to be armed so that those who hate cannot overwhelm it with their malice…My good friend from Hyderabad, India, has proven, with this, his FOURTH collection of inspiring poetry, that a battle can be a beautiful thing if it is fought with poetry, with words powerful enough to reach the soul and effect a positive change in humanity…

    For me, to arm our love…a concept that perhaps is novel and that many may not fully understand…can be defined and can be explained in one phrase: Love is the motivation, the force that guides…but hate is also a strong motivator, another force that lamentably guides many others…there exists, then, confrontation…so, we, those that love, must be ready to arm our philosophy, arm our resistance to hate…for we do not look at LOVE as simply an emotion, a feeling shared by two people in bliss, we look at love as a guide, a lifestyle…I can see that for Dr. Ashok, poetry is a weapon, words are mightier than the sword, as it has been stated for centuries…in reading his new poetry collection, TWINKLES, I came to the immediate realisation that he is a man who understands the principles of love and also understands that such a revolutionary force has to be armed for its protection.

    Tholana Ashok Chakravarthy, is a man who grew up in a modest house, sharing his life with brothers and sisters…he was educated, he is engaged in gainful employment, he lives life, provides for his family, and he writes…his objective, in his own words, is “simple living and high thinking”…he says that it made him what he is today…I am very proud to count him as a friend, a comrade, and I am blessed to have been able to read and ponder upon his poetry, which is his soul, bared for the world to know, for all to understand, and for me to admire…

    Tholana is fascinated by spirituality, by philosophy…those are two of the mightiest weapons in the arsenal of those who love…I believe, and I have no doubt that Dr. Ashok will most certainly agree with me, that, we are not all the same under God’s blue skies…we are not the same as those who would use weapons of mass destruction, we are not the same as those who would utilise a car-bomb and drive it into a crowd of people at a market place…we are not the same as those who would incarcerate others and torture them and humiliate them…we are not the same as those who do not tolerate religious differences, lifestyle differences, economical differences…we are not the same as those who sustain systems of government and economics that do not provide justly and equally for all their citizens, we are different from those that advocate heartless super capitalism to the detriment of the majority of their citizenry, those that do not have health care, housing, education or the basic food items necessary to avoid malnutrition and disease…No! We are not all the same…We, those who love, reject and shun these practices, we reject evil…those who love, strive and work to develop a planet free of such iniquities…those who love are a species threatened with extinction and we realise that those who hate are gaining strength in numbers because they control the media, the news, and, therefore, the life of many. They neither have the time nor the energy to philosophically understand their plight and the danger that they face, and the danger that they place us all in

    Dr. Ashok, as a Revolutionary, has created for people a glimpse of love and the importance that we all must recognise that we have to protect that love with all our heart. His previous books, CHARISMATA OF POESIE, THE CHARIOT OF MUSINGS, SERENE THOUGHTS, I do believe, have led him along the path, and have brought him to this new threshold, this new book, wherein he writes:

    “…poetry is a reliable weapon
    which can soften any situation,
    an effort, I craft on my own
    to spread the message of unification.”
    (fragment from “POETIC HARMONY”)

    Tholana is a poet-person who looks forward…his compositions began back in his teen years, and over SIX hundred of them have appeared in international literary magazines…he loves music, jazz, the sounds of the drums, the flutes, and the thrill of a good science fiction movie…filled with fantasy, filled with poetry…therefore he can write in his new book words such as:

    “Humanity is butchered on the streets
    the thought of love and brotherhood;
    seem buried and bulldozed in hearts.
    The enemy within, be totally eliminated.”
    (fragment from “WITHOUT SELFISH MOTIVES”)

    I know a warrior when I meet one, and one with such weapons is one who I will always admire…I am delighted to have been able to say a few words about this poet, this member of the army of those who love, and I am touched by having read his words…

    PEACE

    HORIZON OF POETIC TWINKLES:
    SOME REFLECTIONS
    Patrick Sammut,
    Republic of Malta

    Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana and I have been friends
    through internet for many years, thanks to our common interest,
    Poetry. For years, many from all over the world, have regularly
    received and appreciated his poetry, through his printed books,
    but especially through the net.
    The poet, like every human being, has a narrative to recount. Dr.
    A Chakravarthy Tholana’s narrative in this new collection of
    poetry – his eighth one, with 100 poems in all – can be divided
    into five main sections: the existential poet; the eco-poet, or the
    poet as an ecologist; the peace poet; the social poet; and, the self-
    reflective poet. Stylistically, Dr. A. Chakravarthy Tholana prefers
    the traditional forms, especially quatrains, with rhyming
    couplets, as one of his favourite rhyming schemes. The reader
    shall be cherishing poetry both as a play on words, and sound
    poetry through alliterations, assonances, mono-rhymes, and
    what have you.

    The Existential Poet: As a human being, Ashok Chakravarthy
    Tholana writes about the here and now, or his presence in the
    real world. In It Dawns as Usual, he recounts and sings about
    past and present ups and downs, personal experiences such as
    childhood, village life, love, and actual moments of despair. All
    this is delivered through a particular lexical register: “petals”,
    “ocean”, “greenery”, “hills” and “meadows.” Poetry is here
    presented as painting or photography. Poetry and philosophy
    move hand in hand in Chakravarthy Tholana’s verse. In Fleeting
    Time we read: “Facing upheavels and travails/ In ‘the boat of
    time’, life travels. “Life’s Big Miss reminds us that the poet is a
    being who feels both homesick and conscious of “the fleeting
    time and the advancing age.” An inner feeling of his is that of
    being caught “between... two shores”: his home town where
    there is bliss on the one hand, and the city where he works for
    his daily bread on the other.

    The Eco Poet: As an eco-poet Chakravarthy Tholana’s plea is
    against the destruction of key natural areas on our globe, such as
    the Amazon Rainforest. If We Fail to Confront This is a
    reminder that all humanity is responsible for such devastation.
    Prosper with Nature is about animal extinction, deforestation,
    and destruction of nature. The poet cautions that “Nature is
    bound to unleash its fury in the future” if human beings
    continue with such conduct. Thus, his plea is: “Let the world
    prosper with nature without any rift.”

    The Peace Poet: Although what we read here are the verses of a
    poet who is always conscious that “The world is a mere
    decoration of delusions” (The Peace Space) and “the world is a
    spectacle of illusions”, what really Chakravarthy Tholana does
    through his poetry is inviting us to world peace. In Ushering in a
    New Dawn the word “peace” is repeated twenty times within
    the space of twenty four lines. In A Poet’s Vision... we also read
    that the poet is a being of foresight, the pen being his only
    weapon. The poet’s duty is “To spread equal love and generosity,
    / To arouse humane instinct in humans.”
    Knowing that the world is at the same time “painful and
    adorable”, in, Pray the Creator Chakravarthy Tholana prays to
    “boost the human conscience”, to “implant human-trust,
    mutual”, to “rouse mercy in human thoughts” and to oust
    “human self-centric mind”. Apart from education, love is the
    other antidote to hate and disharmony: in You are Someone we
    are reminded that no man is an island and that humans survive
    thanks to love, just as fire survives thanks to firewood.
    The Social Poet: Chakravarthy Tholana is no dreamer, and thus
    his are poems of protest against selfishness, wars, self-inflicted
    pain, child abuse, general apathy, violence, materialism and
    inequality. (With a True Delight) Many of his poems take the
    form of a call for humanity’s transformation from “self-centric”
    to one “cautioned by veiled inner-self.” (For Joy Eternal) Service
    to Humanity is Service to God showcases the poet as a moral
    being, a spokesman of truth, justice, love, hope and charity. Key
    lines in this poem are: “Real bliss and ultimate contentment of
    life / Rests in rendering service to humans in grief”. At Who’s
    Behest is about a substantial part of India’s reality: slum areas,
    famine, poverty, and the orphans’ desperate struggle for food.
    The Cry of a Street Child is about loneliness, hunger and more
    despair (“My dust laden body, torn clothes and sunk eyes”).
    Children need “parental caring” not “suffering”! A similar poem
    is For a Child Forever Is... where Chakravarthy Tholana stresses
    the importance of the mother as giver of love, wisdom and light.
    For the poet of the present collection the man in “tattered
    clothes, feeble body”, “Imparts to one and all, a fitting lesson /
    To rid ourselves from selfish motives / Lest, we cannot fulfil
    life’s objectives.” And in Chakravarthy Tholana’s mindset, life’s
    objectives are the achievement of unity, charity, dignity,
    solidarity, security, nobility, amity, equality, all emphatically
    recurring words in his poetry.
    Education is a key tool against social degeneration. Thus, Pages
    of Learning Books is a tribute to teachers as groomers of our
    minds, enemies of ignorance, mentors, and “light of
    knowledge... of wisdom.” The poetry in this collection
    encourages the reader “to break the shackles of ignorance / To
    realize the true purpose of life’s relevance” (Unless We Realize),
    and to find again “the bliss of self-vision... truth and realization”
    (Truth and Realization).

    The Self-Reflective Poet: Chakravarthy Tholana is also an
    ambassador of Poetry. Mantle of Peace is about the benefits of
    poetry, understood as a “mighty weapon” against death and
    destruction, “a balm, a peace-filled nectar”. Indeed, in It Is the
    Poet, the latter is perceived as “saviour” and an envoy of all
    “acts of humanitarian nature”; here the conviction that
    “poetry... changes the human mood” is supreme. The poet is
    conceived as a supreme being, standing in a privileged position,
    in the sense that he lives both amongst the people and at the
    same time is like an all-seeing eye reflecting on various facets
    that are part of humankind’s everyday life. The poet is privileged
    also because his priority is not survival, but reflection. He is a
    reflecting Self, omniscient and omnipresent – see When I Look
    Deeper -, his gaze noting every outer detail (“dried-up leaves...
    Fall to the ground”; “birds in their nests”) and inner emotion
    and suffering (“unknown fear[s]”). Incite the Mind is a powerful
    poem. Chakravarthy Tholana emphasises that, “Poetic
    thoughts/ ignite,/ implant,/ Inflate,/ invent,/ Inject,/ Induct/
    And incite the mind.”

    Conclusion: This is a collection of poetry not to be read all at
    once, but to be gradually savoured day by day, like an excellent
    bottle of wine. Let us however remember that although the poet
    of this present collection is conscious of the many
    disappointments we as human beings face in life, his remain
    poems of optimism and hope. Thus, his poems, read day by day,
    will certainly generate in us readers a sense of positive vibes,
    respect and unity with both humanity and the universe. In
    Upright Thoughts Chakravarthy Tholana writes about the power
    of words: “they possess real value and power” and “Every
    powerful word related with life / Does act like a potion to
    transform life”. (The Potent Words) Such “potent words” and
    words of transformation remind us of the unforgettable speeches
    made by former peace gurus such as Ghandi, Mother Therese,
    Martin Luther King Jr., and Pope John Paul II in their relentless
    plight against hatred, racism, nationalisms and war. Dr. Ashok
    Chakravarthy Tholana’s narrative in Horizon of Poetic Twinkles is
    also one which invites us readers to stop for sporadic moments
    during our rushing day to reflect about what really makes
    human beings tick: essentially one race, inhabiting the same
    space, all of us off springs of a Mother who (for our own sake)
    rightfully demands our care, attention and respect.

    FOREWORD


    Mrs. Pushpalatha Ramakrishnan,

    Tamil Nadu

    This book, Horizon of Poetic Twinkles written by Ashok
    Chakravarthy Tholana seems to be a masterpiece bestowed upon
    Mankind for all are living in a state of restlessness, always on the
    move to attain the highest position, no time to think about the
    ailing humanity. At such a crisis all are graced by the
    composition made by the eminent poet Ashok Chakravarthy
    Tholana. The book appears to be very emotive and emphatic as
    well. Though it abounds with autographic elements, it seems to
    be elevating the soul and even enhancing the minds of all
    towards peace and enlightenment and transport all into the
    world of bliss.
    The poet is probing into the depth of his heart and pondering
    over the past. When the poet opens the window, he notices the
    school children, walking past meadows. He is taken back to the
    past, his childhood days, his mother's love and the changes
    grabbing him into the stage of adolescence, the days when he is
    enticed with the petals of love and the days his love being
    snapped up.
    At times he seems to be very philosophical when he sees the
    selfish world which he often visualizes; it is vying for supremacy
    over others. He insists on the positive approach to anything with
    a clear vision which sets everything right. From the start to the
    finish of the book, the poet pleads for peace and aspires to
    maintain harmony at home and country.
    He appears to be a lover of Nature for he loves the environment
    very much. In the poem ‘Amazon Rain Forest Fires’, he raises a
    hue of cry against deforestation and sincerely wishes all to
    safeguard the ecosystem well. Another most remarkable poem is
    ‘Why Don't We Respond’, which brings out the state of the
    miserable children. Being full of sympathy, he feels very sad to
    see their plight. He wants all to make a response to the alarming
    conditions of the kids.
    He often dreams about a day when humanity is to be awakened.
    He hopes for such a day when love and kindness flow like a
    serene river. As a socialist, he wants all barriers on the basis of
    caste, creed and religion to be removed and to establish a sense
    of common brotherhood among all. Sometimes he seems to be
    highly philosophical for he passes through the evolution of
    thought. He observes how everyone is caught-up in the
    materialistic world, hankering after materialistic pleasures. He
    always listens to the inner voice to attain peace. Just like him he
    wants all to get benefitted. His observation of life in the poem ‘A
    Righteous Will’ depicts the spinning of life into a pool of
    delusions which reveals our thirst for materialistic pleasures. At
    such a critical state the poet comes forward to affirm that the
    only determination to follow the Righteous Will alone shall
    confer us with success.
    As a serious thinker, he raises his voice against the ailing
    humanity. The power for supremacy is the factor which makes
    countries vie with one another to ride on human debris. As a
    lover of humanity, he pleads for mercy, for love, and for concern
    which alone can transform the alarming condition of the world.
    A short analysis of all his poems shows how he propagates
    peace. Most of the poems signify the need to spread peace to
    maintain harmony at home and at the world as a whole. He feels
    proud of singing that "I am poetry, yearn to prophecy the
    Universal Truth". The poet frankly admits how the memory of
    the fond love that helps him to unravel the mystery in his mind
    and pave a way to become a prolific poet.
    The review of all his poems shows the compassion he has for the
    homeless children, the need to maintain eco-balance, the
    necessity to maintain peace to enter into a new Era.
    The quintessential ingredient of life is supposed to be positivity
    which has been the underlying statement of his poems too. The
    earnest request made on his part to free helpless children from
    violence and exploitation is worthy to be noted. The pledge for
    child care and protection shows the unconditional love he has
    for the homeless children. I am very happy to see the traits of
    goodness, kindness, immeasurable love for the mass and Nature
    too in all his poems. Wish his poetry flutter and speak of peace
    and truth across the world. I recommend HORIZON be read by
    children at schools, students at colleges and universities.

    FOREWORD

    Corina Junghiatu,
    Romania

    The exceptional quill of Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana is
    addressed to all lovers of peace, unity and knowledge, being
    himself an impetuous promoter of these values. The author
    generously gives us, in his 8th volume of poetry, titled, Horizon of
    Poetic Twinkles, the essence of the good, of the knowledge and
    new horizons for accessing these gems. Often we find in this
    volume the phrase "light of knowledge", his poems being,
    without exception, a reflection of the light of knowledge.
    Speaking about Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana, is a gifted
    poet, writer and reviewer from Hyderabad city, Telangana State,
    India, whose message-centric poems got published in no less
    than 90 countries across the world. He’s conferred with several
    prestigious, national and international awards, that include five
    doctorates and quite a lot of laurels, commendations, citations
    and titles for his prolific poetry contribution in promoting
    Universal Peace, World Brotherhood, Environment
    Consciousness, Protection of Nature, Safeguarding Children
    Rights, Promoting Human Rights and on several other socialcentric issues.
    For his unique poetry compositions, Dr. Ashok received
    commendations from Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former-President,
    India, Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee, former-Prime Minister, India,
    Bill Clinton, USA, Queen Elizabeth of Britain, Princess of
    Wales, President and Prime Minister of France, Prime Minister
    of Switzerland, Senator Viktor Busa, The Lord President, Italy,
    United Nationals Organization, UNESCO, UNICEF etc. As of
    now, seven poetry compilations, viz., (1) Charismata of Poesie;
    (2) The Chariot of Musings; (3) Serene Thoughts; (4) Twinkles; (5)
    Reflections; (6) Altitudes; (7) Outlet; out of 18 volumes of English
    poetry have been published and received wide readership
    acclaim all over the world. And, 12 spiritual-related books have
    been translated so far by him from Telugu (local language) to
    English language.
    Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana belongs to the category of
    poets of great grandeur, unique by the high intensity of the
    experiences and the messages, unique by the candor of the
    lyrical attitude, by the grace of his gesticulation and his
    coagulating radius of the deepest thoughts, putting his soul in
    the palm of the reader.
    If I were to put Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana somewhere, it
    would certainly be under the sign of humanity. The
    distinguished poet has an exceptional vocation to open the
    unknown windows of the soul with the privilege of his authentic
    talent, with his fabulous poetic vocation and with the gift of the
    pregnant and naturally spoken verse. His poems, wrapped in the
    velvet of the metaphor, denote higher levels of wisdom,
    sensitivity, depth, awareness and love for others people, in
    fascinating lyrical clippings.
    This volume of poetry, Horizon of Poetic Twinkles is distinguished
    by wisdom, greatness, nobility, thus mirroring the beauty of the
    author's eternally thirsty spirit. Living in all seasons of life, the
    poet swings through the broad spectrum of life, managing to
    extract from the word light and wisdom. The aesthetic value of
    the poems of this volume is fabulous and sprinkled with an
    enchanting lyricism.
    Love for people and life is the perpetual expression of the
    spiritual state the poet experiences intensely, with the grace of a
    gentle tone, as exaltation. The poems are distinguished by
    exuberance under the empire of love, peace, fraternity, integrity,
    dignity and truth.
    Indeed, this volume of poetry is a lyrical discourse with
    overwhelming resonances of the soul of a remarkably poet,
    which transmits emotion with his extraordinary ability to
    plasticize the deep essences into a generous and sensitive poetic
    language, turning every word into a real poetry.
    Dr. Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana it frills, first of all, with the
    ability to render to the word props surprising effects with a
    polished style, to extract the essence of the word and to reveal
    miracles by reconstituting an affective universe familiar with the
    readers.
