I’m thrilled to share that Dr. Santosh Bakaya’s review of my full-length poetry collection “My Body Lives Like a Threat” has been published in the March edition of SETU Magazine Immensely grateful to Anurag Sharma for publishing the review and supporting my work.  Immensely grateful to Dr. Santosh Bakaya for writing the review and sharing her thoughts about my full-length collection.

“Her poems talk of spine-chilling truths, of grieving souls not knowing what hit them, of a relentlessly hammering anguish, of bodies breaking into a million pieces and of a senseless lynching of desires and dreams.  They are so powerful that one continues to reel under their impact long after one has finished reading them. They exemplify the line of the Greek poet, Dinos Christianopoulos, “They buried us, but they didn’t know we were seeds.” Indeed, her poems assure us that despite the burial of innocence, it will be reborn, spreading peace, equality and fraternity all around and will smear the faces of the mendacious with their veracity;
You tried to ruin me but you turned me into a warrior.
 A blind seed ready to branch out.”
[Transformation, p 13]”
