About the Book
Four Gardens and other poems is a selection from poems written between 2004 and 2016. They are divided thematically into seven sections: 'Poetry' 'Roots' 'Mirror' 'City' 'Angst' 'Hope' and 'Four Gardens'. The subjects range from the personal to the political and philosophical, meditative ruminations to retelling and reinterpreting of myths and legends, both ethnic specific and universal. Some of the poems in this volume express the inner conflicts of the poet and her attempt to find a resolution. She has lived through the violent political struggles of the Northeast, has been exposed to the harsh realities of being considered an alien in one's own country, and faced the stark facelessness of city life. But through all these, she realises her true identity as a human being, created, valued and nurtured by the Creator. The poems conclude with a note of hope and peace in a world of continual conflicts.
