Drops of Dew is a collection of fifty poems by Ashok Sinha written during the mid-60s and mid-70s. During this period, Ashok Sinha traveled from India to the United States where he was a student and, subsequently, a research fellow (NASA), respectively. The poems mostly reflect emotional response to this transitional phase and related reactions in terms of love, separation, anticipation, etc. with a Sufi-like quality where the object of love is often identified with God. An underlying tone of positivity is usually present in most of the poems. Also, there are poems that deride human fragility or social aberration with a touch of humor. The reader is likely to identify his or her feelings with the themes of these poems most naturally.
