Sibal launches book on poetry

New Delhi: Cabinet minister Kapil Sibal Friday launched his new book `My World Within` at World Book Fair amidst much fanfare.

Sibal said the book, a collection of poems, was based on his perception of the outside world.

"Everyone perceives the world around them in their own way. This book is based on my perception of the world around me," he said.

Sibal recited selected poems from his book. He was accompanied by Hindi author and poet Ashok Chakradhar, who had translated Sibal`s earlier books in Hindi.

Some poems shifted to Sibal`s take on spirituality and God.

"When I think of things like terror or what happened in Gujarat, it shakes my belief in God," he said.
