“Who Shall I be Today?” is a collection of 57 poems penned down by Sunita Saldhna. The poems are about the various roles a woman plays in her journey of life. Right from the time when her young love flourished to picking up the broken pieces of her heart, from being a daughter to motherhood, from loosing herself to finding her path.

All the poems come from a space right from the author’s heart. The essence of womanhood is penned down beautifully with each poem being powered with emotions of love

This book is a collection of poems of varying emotionsbrought together as you would a string of colourful beads.
The book cover is very apt and the blurb does complete justice to the contents of the book. The title is so so appropriate and true to the fact
that a woman plays various roles and goes through varied emotions in her day to day life.
The poems are heartfully penned that found an entry straight to my heart. Though the book is small, the power that the poet packs in her poems using simpl

My perception of a poetry is the free flow of a poet’s imagination intertwined with a flood of emotions and adorned by figures of speech. Half the fun of reading a poem is in its ambiguity. I admire the intentional ambiguity in the poetry, as it leaves it to the imagination of the readers to decipher and interpret the meaning by using their hearts and brains. Having said that, sometimes I enjoy reading poems to take a walk down the memory lane or be showered with the depths of emotions that a po ...more

Sunita Saldhana's Who Shall I be Today is a collection of poems which explores the many roles of being a woman.

The first poem in this collection is titled 'Words'. I fell hook line and sinker with that one itself.

A few lines from that poem -

Adding magic to my world,
Breathing life into feelings,
Helping me fly."

It just got better as I read along.

The poems in Who Shall I be Today explore varied emotions.

Independence, Companionship, Fighting depression, Pain, Nostalgia, Love, Death, Motherho

I loved how every poem en captures emotions and the words define it beautifully.

I almost thought it was a poetic version of the famous Chicken Soup series. Easy to read and re-read, something that could be gifted to your friends and daughters.

I also liked the laid back simplicity of some poems like - where is the time?

If you're looking for a light poetry read, but something that makes complete sense. I totally recommend this book.

Poetry is the art of expressing oneself in a musical manner. The words dance to the tunes of the writer’s heart and the verse that is panned out of the amalgamation of beautiful words and emotions reflects the beauty of the writer’s heart.

‘Who Shall I Be Today?’ by Sunita Saldhana is a collection of poems that are written from the heart. The poems delve into what makes up a woman. It is a celebration of womanhood and is guaranteed to touch the soul of every woman who reads it.
