I’m a mother of a smart and energetic twelve-year-old. I started expressing myself creatively in 2017. Since then I have been continuously inspired by events in my life that have helped me in penning my thoughts. I’m an avid reader, love to sing, am an ardent lover of poetry, and sometimes can scribble a few lines too. I love to dance in the rain, have an undying love for nature, and can watch the beautiful sunset for hours.

I have worked in the IT field for almost a decade as a manager, worked crazy hours, and traveled worldwide. I never got the time to creatively express my thoughts in that busy schedule. Now every time I finish a poem, free verse anything it fills me with so much happiness and excitement and a feeling to have created something of my own.

A deep exposition of gender and color-based discrimination, reproductive rights violations, body politics, and the impact of a toxic political environment on the country and its people.

First Chapbook ” My Body is Not an Apology” by Finishing Line Press, Oct 2021

Sood_Megha_COV-rev1 (1)

Read the Advance Reviews here: https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/my-body-is-not-an-apology-by-megha-sood/

My chapbook is a true reflection of the feminist soul that I carry. All the poems in the collection are centered around body politics and its issues. My poems are a deep exposition of gender-based discrimination, and sexual and reproductive rights violations that reference my experience emanating from gender-based bias and the proliferation of hate speech against women. These poems are not only a reflection of the blatant violation of body autonomy and identity but also address the human rights violation in today’s toxic political environment as a whole. This chapbook highlights my journey, gives it a voice, and strengthens the fact that how the body is so central yet it remains invisible and still acts as a threat.
