I can be your poem,
Read in repose,
Under a sky full of starlight,
Between my desire and yours.
Sunil Bhandari says he’s a chartered accountant, but rarely do people believe him.
How could they? He is forever involved in things that are far away from those relating to accounts and finance.
He has been executive producer to two feature films, has managed a radio station, done programming for a television channel, set up a film studio, managed a host of fashion shows, been on the management committee of an institute, looked after corporate communication of a large conglomerate, sees and writes about films. And says he survives in this world because he can get to write poetry. He says he does all this for his soul; for his body he manages finance.

इतना ज्यादा जोड़-घटाना मेरे वश की बात नहीं।।
