it was amazing

आसमानी इरादे भी है..
ज़मीनी हक़ीक़त भी है..
और बीच में कहीं लटकी हुई..
अपनी शख़्शियत भी है ।। Collections of poems are often the antithesis of page-turners. A single poem can call on the same amount of mental energy as a short story or novel’s chapter. There is a relieving aha when I read a single poem and am compelled to either close the book for respite or obsessively read it over and over for a half-hour. At times, these intense reading experiences can be just what we want to wrangle in a deep tissue mental and emotional massage.

Loneliness is marked by a sense of segregation. Solitude, on the other hand, is a state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness.

I can relate to this as I am a solitude freak- I love the ‘me time’ that aids me to introspect my life and therefore leading to self-awareness.

There are about 50 + poems about love, care and mortality which will nip you with wistful sentiments and blissful thoughts.

Everything about this book is beautiful in and out. The way Surbhi writes- she touches your emotion and each of these poems can be a song itself. I like the way she plays around with the title – this feels like its related to a song that you have heard in the past but giving it a different perspective.

It is not easy to assess poetry- What I would do is just relish it in a good ambiance. interference-free and devour these beautiful and intense thoughts that my favorite poetess judiciously crafted. Like a fine wine- I sip it slowly, feeling one of the best of poetry vibrations

Let these magical and reflective prose poems breathe and invoke their full topsy-turvy splendor. Highly recommended!
