Book Review by Dr Lakshmi Kannan in literary E- journal, Muse India

August, 2020

My review of an international anthology of poetry - The Kali Project, published 2021

'There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you'. Celebrated poet Maya Angelou's words rang true as I started reading The Kali Project - an anthology of Indian women's voices from India and overseas. Poets and artists alike pour forth their myriad emotions and thoughts creating an eclectic labyrinth of Verse interspersed with Art. This amalgamation seeps into the reader to build an incredible internal experience. For me, this is the hallmark of a good read.

The cover of the book designed by Mitch Green sets the tone for this exhaustive and comprehensive tome of 590 pages. Megha Sood, co-editor of the book, published by Indie Blue states the purpose of the book in her Introduction, 'To voice and curate the experiences of Indian female poets and truly celebrate their magnificent achievements and brilliance in creative art, we put out a call to women writers of Indian heritage to submit work that resonated with their desire for equality; illustrating their struggles, angst and pain in attempting to carve an equal position in patriarchal Indian society.' A clarion call that elicited a terrific response of 1500 entries.

Reading my poem - 'Manna from the Skies' at the Timeless Mystical Poetry event, Nov 2021

My new poem: Sept 2021
A new initiative started in February 2021 by my creative platform called Happy Minds.

Delhi, May 2021

In these very difficult and grim times I am reaching out with my poem of hope.

Hoping it provides a glimmer of light.

Remain well... stay safe.

On Republic Day I remembered my nani, my maternal grandmother, who was a freedom fighter.

This poem encapsulates the memory of her inspiring struggle for independence.
