Review of Book : Oas Ki Boondein ( Book on Hindi poetry ) by Sapna Kekre ( Shivani )
Ever since I published my first Book on short stories : Journey from Guwahati to Machhiwara , I keep getting genuine requests from fellow Authors to write a Review / even a Foreword to their Books . But this time I got request from Sapna Kekre who stays in Malaysia to write a Review of her poetry .
I am no great lover of poetry . But this being my first Hindi book for which I was given the task of writing a Review , I read the book in my leisure hours . I have a fairly good knowledge of reading my mother tongue , but sorry Sapna , I tried but could not Review your book in Hindi . May be I can Review your second book in Hindi .
The Book : Oas Ki Boondein is an interesting read . The emotions of the Author are visible in all the 27 poems . The book has been divided in two parts : first part has 21 poems & they have been penned down keeping in view ( DIL ) ie from the heart . The second part is more serious & philosophical which covers 6 poems . It looked nice when Shivani used my favourite word # Journey to describe : Journey of life .
According to me one of the best poem penned down is : Yaadein . Then comes : Aurat Tu Kaun Hai ?
