How many can claim to have conquest love and not otherwise? Lopa Banerjee has, through her book Thwarted Escape by living that example of a life we aspire to have but do not venture into jumping over its gates for comforts of our couch suits us better.
“The book is not just of a memoir of her childhood, womanhood and motherhood but a real contemplation of the many hoods we wear and are surrounded by in our society.”
According to me, Poets can ink even with a thorn of a cactus and tip of a shrub. And here, we have an extremely talented combo of a poet-writer who weaves her journey tiptoeing to every crevices of her life filling it her poetic verses oscillating to the past while holding on to the present very beautifully.
This book is an escape to the finest wonderland of words travelling through the shrewd threads of our beliefs, bellowing to the stingy minds, walking to the green pastures of nature, the bylanes of Kolkatta to the porch of Nebraska all woven with a lyrical play of the tanpura!!!
Thwarted Escape book that will propel you seek your purpose in life in your own way, rise up to bad situations and like a phoenix fly to new beginnings of positivity, valour to take charge of life to make it better one day at a time.
It is one of my most treasured book that I tend to revisit for seek comfort, confidence to don every hat that life offers me and am sure you will to.
