“...Highly vibrant portrayal of the individual’s existential issues, ranging from the mundane deprivations to the primordial lust and passion, anguish and anger…  Equally powerful is the author’s projection of the public life in all its shenanigans, conspiracies and treachery.

The most redeeming aspect of Yuyutsu’s poetry is his powerful writing style that brings forth the human experience directly without the binds of sophistication that tends to dissipated original spirit. The rawness of his writing is so exhilarating; it brings the full flavor of the locale to the sense.”

—The Rising Nepal


Yuyutsu’s poetry is the poetry of agony and anger.  It does not soothe; it shocks. It does not lull; it awakens the reader to a reality he is least bothered about.  Also, it has a distinct native flavor: maize fields, bare cots, hearths, querns, mud-plastered wall, and a grain of monsoon. It is different from the poetry of those who roll in the labyrinth of inner life or rejoice in the cities where skyscrapers bloom.  His poetry is evidently akin to the regional literatures he is familiar with, Punjabi, Hindi and Nepali.

— The Indian Literature


In Yuyutsu R.D.’s poems you can feel nature — the rainbow, the river, the day and night.  Nature is a metaphor to express human agony and Yuyutsu draws this situation in strong and rich colors. In his poems about poetry, Yuyutsu metaphors are galloping, noble and wild. He shows us other specials ways we need in the face of poetry.

Yuyutsu R. D. is a superbly gifted poet.  His volumes may be small in size but they are massive in scope and immense in vision.  His poems are lovely artifacts of craft and ardor, patiently distilled perceptions; finely polished insights.

I love the lyric accuracy of his Lake Fewa poems.  They are linguistically taut and melodically lithe.  Heart stunning stuff where every word tells, where every line flows.  It is clear that Yuyutsu R. D. loves the heave and surge of language; the swell and swirl of syllables; the roll and rush of sound.  In these poems, he rafts the roaring river of language with the whirl and whoosh of a true master rafter.
