Her debut book, a slim collection of prose poems CROSS STITCHED WORDS, was published in February 2021 by the US-based publishing house SETU. She would be presenting her book to the audience and read out from the book.
The poems in this bundle attempt to connect and engage the inner life of our hearts, through words, through images, through poetry. The author worked on this book and compiled them at a time when the world battled with the pandemic. Writing this book was an amazing experience, as she addresses the themes of love, loss, passage of time, impermanence, migrants crisis, enviornmental crisis, freedom, empthay and sorrow. Through this book reading, she would be sharing her poetic journey, her experiences, life lessons with the audience.
