As the rainbow deck up the sky with its beautiful mesmerizing colours, in the same way a human heart is an enchanting canvas of colourful emotions. The stark red paints love and passion, blue the gloom, the bubbly pink immerses you in the carefree memories of childhood and white depicts the gravity of mood. Satrangi Syaahi is one such collection of beautiful Hindi poetry that captures vivid emotions of human heart and takes you on a beautiful journey, Life. This collection of poetry is a reflection of emotions of two authors Surendra Kumar Gupta and his daughter, Neha Jindal (author of Phases of Moon). Experience the colours of life through this emotional web of words.
Satrangi syahi is a collection of poems from different themes weaved into one book of revelation. Co-authored by two people some poems are by one and then the other. The title is okay as per the content of the book. Cover is colourful and composed. The blurb doesn’t give much about what the book contains or what kind of poem. I thought the book will be random poems from different walks of life but then it consists of sections such as vyang,Bundelkhand ke Gaurav,deshprem,bhavbhini and chanikaaye. The book has 53 poems. They vary in length some being 4-5 lines and some extending more. Some poems in the book really spoke to me. I wasn’t expecting Patriotic poems in the book but they were written pretty good as well. Keen observations and feelings that we go through have been put up in the poems. Some poems will exactly be like how you perceive upon a topic. A good book but I was expecting more. A short read but will definitely refreshen you up.
