We say understanding a woman is a mystery but do we ever give her the space to voice her vulnerabilities and accept her or listen to her sans judgment?
Bringing out the hushed voices in verses of honesty and mystery, this book unveils the vulnerable side of women, unapologetically.
30 poems penned under 20 heteronym characters, organized into 4 (chapters) stages of life- dharma, artha, kama, moksha, the poems explore a myriad of emotions welcoming you into the world of women. Composed of verses that explore a variety of poetry formats and literary devices, each poem is as unique as each woman and her experience.
Get to know the celebrations and struggles of these women in a way they want you to see, without the filter of patriarchy. Do you have it in you to accept them for who they are? If yes, then this book is for you!
Sometimes we read something and it connects to us so well that we feel like the piece was talking with us or rather, about us. For me, poetry is one such form of writing. But not just any poetry. As a poet myself, I use poetry to connect to my emotions and also vent out my feelings. So, when I read poetry that helps me feel happy, sad, or just about any emotion, I instantly fall in love with the poet. One such book or rather a poet, who made me feel this way was Seethalakshmi. She managed to do so through her book Dharma Artha Kama Moksha. Full review: https://wp.me/p6XQyB-49d
Manali Desai Aaawww...Thank you so much for the beautiful review, Manali :) Happy to know that you enjoyed the read! Btw, noted your suggestion. There will definitely be more poems, characters and nuanced conversations in the print version in the future. It's a WIP (fingers crossed!). Thanks again, Manali :) P.S. Getting a 5* rating from you is like a trophy for me given that you are a seasoned reader:)
Poetry is a fascinating form of a literature. I am new to English poetry & this is a good one to start. Frankly, i couldn't understand quite a few of your poems but I loved "I See a Monster from My Window" https://adisjournal.com/dakm-review/
