‘The Myriad Hues -II’ is beauty in sublime. Having worked at Birla International School where the poet published her first book ‘THE MYRIAD HUES’, being inspired by the enchanting nature, the luring sunsets, the long walks, the slithering snakes, the naughty squirrels, the chirping birds, the swaying trees, the howling winds is all what ‘The Myriad Hues- II’ is all about. The enthralling campus has been the guiding force for the poet to go on with her second book, ‘”A Collection of Poems” which comes by as a dedication to the place which has inspired her enough. It is not the people who stick on in your memory after you have moved on, it is the trees and the roads and the sunsets and the sunrises which one remembers, retains and recalls. The tranquility which the place offers is the best take away for one in these difficult times. While one finds oneself drowning in the din of the city voice, the campus then comes by as a ready recluse for one to unwind , giving one an opportunity to think and introspect. This is what ‘The Myriad Hues- II’ is all about.
