Catharsis is a collection of poems written over a period of ten years. The poems are mirrors to characters, incidents and situations that touched the poet, somewhere, sometime, somehow. All the poems state what, or how the poet must have perceived things, during a particular space in time. The poet is clearly in love with the beauty of words, and the timeless spell it creates while crystallizing tears, and laughters, and more importantly, all that lies between the two.

About the Book

Catharsis is a collection of poems written over a period of ten years. The poems are mirrors to characters, incidents and situations that touched the poet, somewhere, sometime, somehow. All the poems state what, or how the poet must have perceived things, during a particular space in time. The poet is clearly in love with the beauty of words, and the timeless spell it creates while crystallizing tears, and laughters, and more importantly, all that lies between the two.

My poems are all reflections of how I perceive the world around me — the undercurrents of a struggle that is so intrinsic to human existence. I would also like to add that there are some emotions, thoughts, situations and events that take place in everyone’s life that tend to lose their innate essence, if not captured carefully. Hence, I chose the pen — precisely to retain the beauty of what life has so generously offered – loss, misery, despair and of course, the eventual ‘sun shines’. My poems are me, my freedom, my refuge…
