This book brings together Bhai Vir Singh's early and final poems in the English language. Trel Tupke (Dew Drops) launched his poetic career; Mere Sainyan Jio (My Beloved) was the culmination of his poetic development. The images and themes important to Bhai Vir Singh early on in life replay in amazing beauty in his final poetic discourse. Together, they provide valuable insights into the poet's vast psychological and mystical world.
