Pankhuria in Hindi means feathers of a bird or a butterfly. I chose the name for the varied topics of my poems similar to picking specific feathers and flower petals and putting them together to give the name Pankhuria for my book. My original poems were published in my native language Hindi. I have now translated them into English to have a wider appeal to a larger number of readers. I have tried to express my feelings in simple poems. My sentiments are expressed in different topics encompassing love, betrayal, hurt, terrorism, Aids, domestic abuse, Tsunami, birth, death, euthanasia, beauty, nature, seasons and many more. When I was writing these poems I had in mind to flavor them with a background of culture from India. And then I realize the truth that the core emotions are the same in all the cultures even though the ways are different. Poetry becomes a powerful art form to reveal them. I have tried to do just that.
