By Anjali Callikan
The thread of passion and love constitutes a vividly intimate backdrop to the author’s collection of poems, ‘Sweet Poison’. Anjali digs deep into the innermost recesses of her soul, with pulsating words deftly bringing the authenticity of her experiences to life, in the brave expression of a journey that has left no scars untouched and bares her deeper quest for meaning to life, love and existence.
Poetry and her ability to use it effectively for creative nuance and passion was indeed admirably suited for the purposes she had set out, to both share the engulfing beauty and perhaps exorcise the deep sorrows that this eternal theme can bring forth in whatever time and location.
An initiation and a first step into self-discovery, a long road which, given Anjali’s flair for words tumbling out with such simplicity, confidence and maturity at her young age, we would only encourage her to follow and find meaning to the eternal questions, inner peace and wisdom without losing the zest and passion for life that permeates her book.
