Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September. It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.
Here is blurb at back of book:
Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.
In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts. A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle. Nature is succour. One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.
It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.
A Poem from Echoes:
Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…
Today showered again the sky
I wondered if
soaking the streets I choose
Small leaves sprout
and crawl inside me,
branches spread out,
straws are collected
nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet
speck of air or earth so full,
and my own heart's silence
in this moment's time.
What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.
Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next?
There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
A night when ushers into new dawn tripping on the past without exhaustion, a momentary persuasion is life this does not ends, burning a bright flame our least possibilities, meagre circumstances sometimes in deep trench of ocean only we know the crystal shape of forms, languidly to hang upon the sky, cast its stars even when we go by unnoticed in cold wind the music we hear, hum and laughter to share.
The lights chime hold on to close breath and little anecdotes what life has in for surprise a creaking door is closed, all the dew on roses in vivid path the fireplace opens up a circle in half sleep, sleepiness, and a busy chatter the Sun glows behind hills, bells in synchronous and early resolutions.
