To Quote T. S. Eliot, “Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.” Poetry, a rhythmical creation of beauty, is a painting that speaks! Hindi/Urdu poetry (or shayari) is a rich tradition and has many different forms, whose sheer beauty can be felt and relished… Though this is his maiden collection of poetry as a book, the author, Mohanjeet Kukreja (eMKay), is a very mature and experienced poet, who knows his words, understands poetry, and has mastery over the art of articulation. If you are a poetry lover, this is a not-to-be-missed book! Using a very beautiful blend of Hindi and Urdu, he has written on diverse themes like romance, life, philosophy and Sufism. You shall certainly enjoy the select-mix of ash’aar, kavita, nazm, qat’aa and ghazals presented wonderfully as “Abhivyakti,” which literally means ‘expression’!
