About the book


A virtual world that inexorably throbbed with a buzzing reality beamed into the lives of all the uniquely gifted poets in this anthology. The Significant League which is a literary group that allows talent to go berserk, mystically made these poets gravitate towards each other. The title of the book was an inevitable choice as the words that played "blind man`s buff ", in the deepest recesses of our souls, did a merry jig on our screens. The flutes and cymbals of the potpourri in each poet`s orchestra miraculously intertwined in the matrix, serenading with lyrical symphonies. I am very honoured to be a minuscule part of this squad of prodigious talent.
