Top magazine inks Deo's poem

HE has done it again.

Inspirational author Amitesh Deo's writing has taken him to another part of the globe -— this time with one of the world's leading magazine — Time Magazine.

In an interview, he described the achievement as a breathtaking one considering the poem titled "Children by Soul — Let's Protect Them" was not printed locally.

"I had sent it to a local newspaper last year but didn't see it get printed so I left it at that," he said.

"I have a feeling that the newspaper company could have sent it to an international organisation which Time Magazine got hold of and they contacted me.

"You can imagine how shocked I was and had to hold my breath as they explained to me their interest to publish my poem," he said.

Part of the poem talks about a real-life experience in which Mr Deo shares about how working people usually failed to appreciate their loved ones and dedicate time to them.

"We spend most of our time working and when we get back home in the evenings, we go straight to bed or do other things without realising that our loved ones like our children want some of our time," he said.
