 Nitheeshreddy Gaddam’s autobiographical exploration in Two Hearts & Two Bodiesfollows him on a journey through love, both cerebral and carnal. Interspersed
throughout the text are simple, but moving poems inspired by the most genuine human
emotion, a young man’s first love. Like the experience of most young men, Nitheesh’s
love becomes his whole universe, She carries the fire of the sun/ in her eyes,/and the
kindness of the moon/in her heart. And with all the innocent trappings of youth, he
projects all the beautiful potential that he has within onto his girl until her abandonment
overcomes him. How do I know what love is/ when people tied my hands/ and threw me
in the middle of an ocean? After time passes and he recovers, a second dazzling figure
moves into his life. His heart once again opens and his trust is once again lost in a sad
betrayal. Struggling with a gambling habit and the wavering moods that accompany him
amidst the testing time of the relationships and employment changes, he manages to
pull his life into order and reflect on all that has transpired in his two romances. This
book is his reflection that brings with it a coming-of-age triumph of forgiveness, self-
forgiveness, and the hard lessons of surrender and self-respect. This story is
punctuated with creative poems that earn their stunning epiphanies only by the passage
through pain. Choosing self-betterment over bitterness, Nitheesh teaches the art of
letting go in the face of our deeply human obsessions and vulnerabilities, in order to
triumph in spiritual knowledge. After I survived my pain/ . . . I cried like how a bird cries/
after it spreads its lost wings. /I cried, but with happiness this time.
