WAVING AND FLOURISHING ‘THE GRASS UNDER FEET’by: Ritu Aileen
This is an anthology of poems on various themes basically from a woman‟s perspective, whoever is in search of „SELF-IDENTITY‟. The book is divided into two parts. The first part has poems on various themes and the second part is dedicated to my mother. „GRASS‟ here represents a depiction of such females not only in Indian but all over the world where „PATRIARCHY‟ still exists. A woman is being choked to breathe forcefully, starting from her birth till the end of her life. She undergoes many a perception like the existence of human beings on the earth, real meaning of life, harsh reality of death, the definition of true love, reality of relationships, the existence of god, reality of religion &caste issues, the value of moral & spiritual development, concept of nationality & world citizenship, brutal reality of gender & disparity, importance of female education, realization of male dominant society (its‟ customs and absurd beliefs), meaning of self-growth, identity & recognition. In this journey, having a lot of experiences, she definitely finds out the real face of this world and society. This situation gets very grim when she proves to be an ambitious one to explore her.
