Where to buy it


The poems in the collection were written within one year when the pandemic ruled our lives by forcing us into isolation. In hope of maintaining a semblance of reality, the poet is compelled to inhabit imaginative space, focusing on specific images generated by everyday life. The poems become her companions and through writing them, she finds relief in pain and grief. The book Solace is a quest to find consolation, and to speak on behalf of people, who although overwhelmed by human limitations, search for something tangible which can restore their peace of mind in turbulent times.
