Shades of Life

Sukanya, in Shades of Life, captures the intricacies of life with poetic imagery. She brilliantly paints the ups and downs we face in life, and, even more brilliantly, relates how they complement each other.

Life is more than what we see and what we perceive it to be. It’s simpler than we think and it’s more complex than we presume. It’s both interesting and boring—and yes,

Tackling emotions, nature and the world

Sukanya takes the world around her as she views it, and puts it on a page. The collection uses nature and rhyme in a way which aims to be quotable and universally meaningful. However, the rhyme did not always feel necessary (rhyming words were sometimes forced and veered off topic).
I think Sukanya's writing style will develop, as the themes of this book (aiming for universal truths) are very ambitious for a young writer!

There are a few grammatical mistake

It took me not more than 30 minutes to take a wonderful ride, a ride into the world of Sukanya's Poetry Collection. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every poem she wrote.
The poems truly depicted the shades of life in an easy and soothing manner. The words talked to me while I was devouring the beautiful poems. The poems ranged from the choices we make, the pains we go through, the tears we shed, the moods we experience, our failures and success and love. I could find myself completely lost, reviewi
