Description of the Book:


Dewdrops, Raindrops, Teardrops and Sun-drops! is an enchanting collection of poems by D. Akruti Desai. It is an endeavour to put down on paper various emotions experience by the writer at different stages in her life. Her kaleidoscope of words reflect the myriad hues of her journey so far. Over the past decade she has called four diverse cities in India, her home. Being easy to talk to and confide in coupled with her professional role of listening to troubles of her patients has helped her in trying to understand the human condition in its rawest form. Her poem on "Towering Expectations" addresses the weight of societal pressures, while some others tenderly capture the poignancy of farewells. She tries to unfold a narrative of compassion, growth and adaptation, akin to the evolving lexicon of one's existence. Now, back in her hometown, she has rediscovered the solace of familiar faces and rekindled connections with old friends. Her favourite themes are childhood and connections, which sculpt our thoughts, hopes, expectations and values. Each poem is a brushstroke on the canvas of life. With a delicate touch, the poet navigates the complexities of the human forebearance, inviting readers to immerse themselves in the poetic stories that define us all.
