Born and brought up in Amritsar (India), Sanam migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1999. It is this dichotomy of being a migrant, where the writer emerges in Sanam, as he grapples with a sense of his identity across two cultures. Growing up, writing and poetry, started as a fanciful hobby for Sanam. He would often sneak into his dad’s library and stealthily feast on the works of many famous poets and writers. Tamed Words is Sanam’s first book where he takes the leap from being a writer who kept losing poetry written on stray pieces of paper, to a published poet. Sanam spends his days working in a successful Corporate career, while, the nights are often spent being a writer. Sanam lives in Melbourne with his wife (and his biggest supporter) Jasdeep, and their 7 year old son, Arjun.

Here is a collection of short poems by Sanam presented in a short video made my the author himself.
Molten Eternities is a collection of short poems that etch out the dogmas of this universe and attempt to have a look on the other side. The poems poke the vast eeriness of the cosmos, and how it is an eternity and a brief moment, all at once. Caught up in this paradox of ‘time’ are all of us - molten fragments of an eternity, and shackled down by years, and lifetimes
