Kuch Woh Pal is a collection of Hindi poems through which the writer takes you on a journey blended with ecstatic and painful experiences of a young boy taking on the struggles of life where he is away from his home for studies, makes new friends, finds love, break up with her and finally going through a tumult of emotions like anger, depression, apathy, romance, frustration, loneliness, separation, abandonment, etc.

Plan a date with yourself, partner or your friends and read it over a cup of tea or coffee; catch up with your friends over a beer at the beach or during a get-together or to propose to the love of your life. This book will surely leave your mind and heart in a tangle of romance, sympathy and self-revelation.

Book Review

This book carries 51 poems mostly based on romance and friendship. I was very excited to start off but as I progressed I found them more of whatsapp type. I was expecting some good Hindi verses but they appeared like the ones which a new poet writes in his initial days. I think if a poem is published in a book, the expectations of the reader are set high. I am not at all discouraging the author from writing more poems. He has got quite good skills to give shape to his thoughts into words. The only thing, as a reader, I would expect is some thoughtful, intriguing poems written with a splash of lost Hindi words. The book is quite an easy read for the beginners.

Happy Reading!
