View: 414When Nandita writes, she does so in volume, unable to contain the poetry flowing through her veins. - FT Ledrew (Poet, writer, musician, song writer, Canada) From start to finish, Nandita writes with verve and spirit. In her unique poetic prose, she weaves together mind, body and soul in a superlative manner. Sometimes sharp and poignant, sometimes subtle and searching, Nandita is always pleasurable to read, thought-provoking, and often inspirational. Many have already been blessed by her writings, and now many more will receive the same in her offerings here, in her first book publication. Read slowly, read carefully, and enjoy. - Jonathan Noble (American poet, essayist, cultural critic, and social service volunteer) Reading Nanditas work is a pleasure for any reader. In her repertoire, built over time and expanded through the constant flow of ink from her willing pen, is something for everyone. Not only do her poems reflect her interests, emotions and experiences, but her active and creative imagination conjures up such scenes and settings for her poetic expressions that make reading her an interactive experience. There is always a layer of meaning hidden beneath the surface of her poems, that the reader may find if they can. But even if they do not, each piece of work is complete in itself and carries with it a wealth of meaning and enjoyment. No poet is complete without empathy, and Nandita has this in spades, using it most effectively while spinning a tale from her versatile mind that surprises us with its depth, even while holding us up above the chasms. She is a shining example of perseverance in the pursuit of that which she loves most; to write poetry, doing this with a smile, a ready dose of wit, an excellent sense of humour and no small amount of talent. - Priyanka Ruth Prim (poet, literary research scholar/critic, India) Nandita isnt just a poetess. She is the embodiment of poetry. With nothing but a pen and her vivid inner life, she expresses on the page what would ordinarily be inexpressible. She has a habit of conjuring words and phrases that voice what we are all feeling or hope to feel. She commits to the process of unveiling her heart and her great love for people so that all can see and share. Find yourself in her words and be mesmerized by her ability to be your voice for the unwritten poetry in you. There are no half measures here. To read Nandita is to know her. Truly, she is - as her pen name says - Manan Unleashed! - Tony Single (cartoonist, poet, vagabond soul, Australia) Photo credits unknownuser666- Manjit Saikia unknownuser666.wordpress.com Unmarked - FT Ledrew hooklineandinkwell.wordpress.com

View: 4462A book of poetry collected from family memories as a child. Every poem in the collection pertains to a family member in my life, or special moments. Also writing was a moment when I could speak from the soul and ended being wonderful therapy. I found out I could put my feelings away in a box, and return when I wanted to remember my special people. When my sister Annie was dying from cancerous tumors in the head was the most hurtful moments of life. She inspired me to write because my love for her gave me so much power to write about her and preparation to say goodbye.

The book is about a young girl who has lost her mother at an early age during 1900s. Shes the only girl in a family of seven children. Her mother dies very tragically on a lake when she was only four years old. This is about how a family handles a death of a loved one and still goes on to become a complete family. The sacrifices that families make in order for their children to be successful. Almost like todays world? Annies mom was a brilliant concert piano player and renowned in many music halls of New York City and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Annie gets all the right scholarships and awards to be able to go to St. Claires Academy for girls in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Of course, loneliness and fears set in for the fourteen-year-old teenager. In time, she connects with friends and meets a wonderful girl named Rebecca that becomes her lifelong friend. Coincidently enough, Rebecca also has the same family scenario as Annie. No mother, a large family, and a talented mother who also has died. Both moms were piano concert players, beautiful women, and highly respected in their towns. As wealthy as Rebeccas dad was, Richard, Annies father, was not. Time passes and Annie and Rebecca hear music being played during the night from the forbidden room at the attic as they sleep, but they are awakened. This room has been forbidden from day one, and all were told to never ever go near this room. During many nights, the music plays, and Rebecca and Annies curiosity leads them to the forbidden room. It was a visit the girls would never forget.
