Things I Love & Learnt About Wet Silence: Poems about Hindu Widows by Sweta Srivastava Vikram
Wet Silence: Poems about Hindu Widows by Sweta Srivastava Vikram is a heart touching and inspiring collection of poems written by Hindu widows from India. In the Hindu culture, when a woman loses her husband, she cannot remarry, she has to wear white saris, and she also can’t eat certain foods anymore. This is a collection of poems depicting some of the most intimate emotions a woman can muster. Some of the widows miss their husbands dearly, while others are happy to be free of their abuser. The emotions are profound, heart wrenching, yet beautiful. These women are not telling their story to ask for help, though, they simply and only break their Silence and allow their most inner voices to be heard. Beautiful, painful, and raw!
Wet Silence: Poems about Hindu Widows by Sweta Srivastava Vikram is a book that will easily touch many readers, young and adult, women and men…
