This book of poems tells us about the transition of the poet‘s state of mind from chaos to a harmonious stretch between all the contours of her mind. The book is divided into two sections, ‘Chaos’ and ‘Clarity’. In the first section, the poet reveals some of her darkest memories and her struggle to survive those daunting junctures. Then the poems transits into peaceful realisations which the poet expresses through her poems in the second section. The poet becomes more accepting of her very being. She writes – “I’m diving deeper into the Universe and beyond/ so much beauty/ so much power/so much truth”. The intervention of the divine too, has been instrumental in this struggle which she often mentions in her poems. Although the poems have been separated in two different contexts with contrasting emotions and experiences, the poet writes in the preface of the book- “I believe, one does not achieve clarity without the chaos.” For her, ‘Chaos’ and ‘Clarity’ are two sides of one coin.
