ABOUT THIS BOOK

This is Shomshuklla’s second book of poems. It is a colourful collection of eclectic poems born as a result of the poet’s travels, musings and personal experiences. The poems present before us a kaleidoscopic image of contemporary reality, abounding as it is with contradictions and a sense of an ongoing quest for meaning. Characterised by minimalism, her style echoes the hidden complexity of the world and exhibits her profound empathy with its pain. Extremely readable, it will serve as a great companion on dreary evenings.
