Raoul Eshelman, literary heavyweight, critic [Germany] , post post- modernist thinker writes about harikumar's aphorisms

M.K. Harikumar’s aphorisms reveal him

to be a keen and critical observer of the

human condition as well

as a resourceful thinker who grapples

with both quotidian and eternal problems.

His skepticism towards many aspects of

contemporary civilization is counterbalanced

by a quest for spiritual values in nature

and in human life itself. In his striving to think outside

the bounds of convention,

he makes us aware of forces

larger than ourselves.
