Igniting Key- An Embodiment of the Soul, the Mind and the Heart

March 29, 2016 | By

Review of book of poems by Pramila Khadun – a trilogy by a triumvirate, an exciting journey into and sojourn in the world of poetry. The beautifully interwoven layers in each of her poems, carry the trademark of artistic brilliance, and awaken the mind, heart and soul.

The Heart

Pramila Khadun’s poetry takes one by surprise, by its sheer vastness of range. Her thoughts float seamlessly from philosophy, to love, from love to war, from war to nature and back to philosophy.
The reader is left gasping at the plethora of treasure handed to her.

Did you see the Poet and Blood and Ink are two of her poems which, like straight arrows, aim right at the heart, at the nucleus of understanding.
“I simply love leaning on your verses
O poet!
They ignite the interplay
Of blue, red and white in my heart,” – I steal openly from her lines as these are my thoughts too, as I read her poems and get lost in their mysteries. And at one point rediscover myself in them.

Igniting Key- An Embodiment of the Soul, the Mind and the Heart

The Soul

Every poem by Ampat Koshy is a masterpiece in its own right. The visual impact is enormous, as if each poem is no longer a text rather an audio visual extravaganza to be grasped by all the five senses. And the sixth too. It is probably the sixth sense which is gratified the most, as all the poems leave an intangible residue in the reader’s mind.

‘Gandhara’ and ‘Sonakshi’ transport the reader to a different era.. the experience is almost like time travel.

Dr. Koshy’s love poems are drastic. They leave the reader bewildered and craving. Therein lies their beauty.

His prose poem ‘Shatarupa’ strikes the reader with its uniqueness of idea and content. The poet is forever breaking known boundaries with his creations!

The Mind

Talking of time-travel brings this reader to another startlingly beautiful poem “A Princess in Bidisha” by the third poet of this trinity – Dr Bina Biswas. The poem leaves a haunting effect of melancholy and nostalgia, an effect which does not wear off easily.

The essence of Dr Biswas’s verses is their profoundness wrapped in concise packages. Her poems are brief yet their effect lingers. The lucidity with which the thoughts progress, makes it easier for the reader to connect with them. Poems like Canonization and Coincidence stun the reader with their apparent simplicity but underlying depth.

The beautifully interwoven layers in each of her poems, carry the trademark of artistic brilliance, and awaken the mind, heart and soul. In times such as these, where truth is commercialized and propaganda sells more than facts, with our backs against the wall, poetry is all we have.
