Yours

By Kakshma Anhad Singh.

This book YOURS

Is a lovely compilation of poetry that cover a wide range of topics and feelings.Some of the poems are about righteousness, deeds, humanity, actions, and karma, while others show the agony of love, longing, and separation, which some believe is easier to bear, but only the one who is in anguish understands how it feels.

One poem is on the present pandemic scenario, which evokes feelings of guilt and being punished by nature for believing we are in charge. There’s a poem about how, despite being the most important, the bearer of life, the embodiment of love, strength, and care, the world still fails to recognise importance of
women.

Another wonderful rhyme is about how people expect us to be strong. It talks about how we can’t show our weak side to others and how we should be more sensitive to other people’s weak sides so that we can recognise when someone is
losing consciousness.

There’s a poem about the nature of life that says, “The finest and worst part about life is that nothing stays the same – whether happy or sad times, both will change.” Another excellent poetry is one in which the sea is personified and gives us counsel and teachings, giving us a new perspective on things and how to react to events.

A very well weaved poetry with great rhymes which is hard to find in poetries nowadays.Cover is beautiful and so is the title.A very well compilation of heartfelt poetries.I just love the way author has articulated her emotions into words.

If you love poems, then this is definitely recommended!

About the book:

“How can a race that is spread out across multiple countries be considered a threat? For as long as he lives, be it short or long, he knows he will never comprehend this.”

Set in the time of “The Holocaust” and WW2 in 1942, this book is about Lale and Geeta who were the prisoners in the concentration camp in Auschwitz, Germany acquired Poland.

Lale is a Slovakian Jew who is rounded up by the Nazi troops. Having been forcefully taken away from his home and transported like an animal, surrounded by heavily armed guards, striped and numbered 32407, Lale is given a job as a “Tätowierer”. He must tattoo the number on every man, woman, child transported to the camp as prisoners. Here he meets Geeta, a prisoner in women’s block, when he is asked to re-tattoo her number on her wrist. They fall in love at first sight.

At the camp, he witnesses gassing of prisoners, mass shooting, unprovocatinal killing of people by the guards, atrocities & torture and so much more. But his heightened survival instinct, opportunistic nature and his determination to live beyond the torture and start a family with Geeta, helps him escape from the camp.

This book is about their journey from being dumped in the camp to escaping from the hell to make a beautiful life for themselves. It felt more like a memoir than a fiction novel. It lacked emotional depth but as the subject is very sensitive it does leave an impact. Those who are interested in the novels based on the “The Holocaust” may like this book
