Description of the Book:

‘A Flawed Obsession’ is an anthology of poems of a mentally disturbed protagonist dealing with loss, love, and leisure in his life. The book contains twenty poems focusing on how the protagonist gets obsessed with different characters in his life; be it his mother, love or friends. There are many emotions & activities displayed in the poems that are unconventional or evidently cruel to the general society; however, they are fair-minded and completely acceptable to the protagonist because whatever he feels, does and says are his true emotions. Period! Although it is hard to depict true love with gruesome murder, selfless emotion with suicide and sigh of relief with losing someone, I have attempted to knit it thoroughly for all my readers to connect & relate with disturbed ‘Dhoundhu’ and realize the extent of human emotions & more. The unaltered emotion of Dhoundhu defines A Flawed Obsession true-heartedly. A guiding suggestion would be: Take a small pause after each comma without breaking the continuity of the aroused thought and wait eagerly after each full-stop to begin another beautiful thought on the same theme. There might be grammatically incorrect sentence formations in a few poems ‘coz our flaws make us perfect and that is what I aspire to profess.
