    There is nothing as that to say with regard to his presence into the domain of modern Indian English poetry. Daruwalla has definitely come a long way to reach the pedestal of glory, but there should be something like that of Jaynat Mahapatra's Door of Paper, a colection of sketches, reflections and memoirs, reviews, opinions, sppeches and lectures and some clarifications on his part which the poet has reminisced about and these we too seek for from Daruwalla. Had he an autobiography, it would have aded to our critical verve. Bijay Kant Dubey

    There is nothing as that to say with regard to this modern Indian English poet who has come a long to reach the pedestal of glory, but as Jaynata Mahapatra has reminisced about in his Door of Paper, a collection of memoirs, sketches and reflections, reviews, lectures and speeches, annotations and explanations gathered in, there should be something on his part to clarify his point of delving. An autobiography will be very helpful in understanding his mind and feeling. Bijay Kant Dubey
