Sumeet Grover is a talented poet bursting forth with the irrepressible energies and aspirations of youth. His voice is a call for victory over despair toward a new world of happiness and peace. Influenced greatly by the poetry and thought of Daisaku Ikeda, leader of a dynamic global movement for peace, culture, and education–the Soka Gakkai International–Grover himself, out of his own experience, calls upon the youth of the world to overcome all obstacles to the joyful celebration of life.
His songs are a worthy contribution to the United Nations International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World (2001-2010). It is hoped that their publication will evoke creative responses in poetry and life from other youthful leaders of the 21st century world.
