During seventies, specially after the liberation war, who have transformed our poetry into newer consciousness and human rejuvenation, and have developed expression of art to arrest time and space into a newer vision-Bimal is one of them. After three decades, he still goes on through the path of poetry with same vigour, energy, belief and determination.
