The book contains poetry works of 29 poets/ writers. All the poems are beautifully written and spread the message of love and harmony. All the poems are related to life in one or the other way which makes it worth reading. I would like to congratulate Bernard and Shonali for presenting the talents of these 29 poets/writers in such an interesting way. While reading the book I witnessed all the flavors of life as mentioned in the introduction, the book is very promising and has a very positive message for all the readers. One must read to get inspired. All the poems are very close to my heart as I can connect my life with most of them. Well my favorite ones among them are ‘To Time’ and ‘Fate’ by Sadia, ‘Mother-My First Love’ by Sadanand Shenoy, ‘Freedom at Last’ by Promilla Qazi and’ To Be Or Not To Be’ by Monroe Gogoi.
The cover of the book could have been more beautifully and interestingly designed keeping the simplicity in mind. Overall, It is a must read collection of poetries by very talented 29 poets/writers. You'll feel full of life and revived in the end.
