ABOUT THIS BOOK

An eclectic, bi-lingual collection of poems, songs, ghazals and couplets, Let It Go by Kinshuk Sharma offers a kaleidoscopic view of the world, ranging from deeply personal feelings of love and loneliness to social issues like terrorism and violence against women—the myriad experiences, some pleasant, others unpleasant, which collectively make up human existence.
‘Couldn’t Find Love’ is a heartrending depiction of the torment and pain of the loss of a lover and the inability to forget and carry on; ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is an ode to the beloved. Dreamlike and delicate, the ode evocatively describes a woman who is immensely desirable but forever unattainable; ‘Is It Destiny?’ is a moving depiction of the loss of childhood while ‘Prosperity’ is a poignant message on the need for compassion.
A sparkling compilation, Let It Go marks the assured debut of a young poet.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

Twenty-four-year-old Kinshuk Sharma was born in Jalandhar, Punjab where he first picked up a tennis racquet at the age of four. He shifted to Chandigarh, when he was five, where he did his schooling. Following his passion for sports, he competed in tennis tournaments all around the globe. Kinshuk represented India in the Junior Davis Cup in 2005 and was also the only Indian that year to be selected for the Asian-African ITF U-16 Team. He attended Shri Ram College of Commerce in 2007 before receiving a full scholarship from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW), USA, from where he completed his Bachelors in Business Administration with concentration in Operations Management and Finance. He received sixteen different academic and athletic awards in his three and a half years at UNCW.
Kinshuk’s first poetic composition came at the age of two. It was the encouragement and appreciation that he received from his family and friends that made him pursue poetry.
