Malhaar- The name reminds me of the rains. The romantic
downpour, the sensuous wetness, and the cool embrace. Rain has two faces- the
happy one and the ferocious one. While in Kerala, our lives are
haywire with the flood, the book shows the rain that acts as someone in our
life. The personification of rain is interesting to read.
Love and rain are intertwined so much so that the depth of
love as well as varying moods of rain are analogically connected. Writing a poem
is the toughest since the writer has to channel their thoughts to give away
the precis of words that are saturated with emotions. Toughest is the job to
write poems that are short and simultaneously convey thoughts. Ambica Uppal
has mastered the act and hence we have a collection of pearls. Most of the
poems are quite short but have a multidimensional approach. We can see romance, suspense,
pain, spirituality, philosophy, and many more in the book.
The words and theme of the poems have the power to
magnetically connect the readers to the book. If taken on a light note, the
book could be finished in half an hour but given the time and effort to read
through the lines, the book proves to be a porridge of imagery. There were a
few repetitions that were not repetitions as such but some ideas or thoughts
were duplicated in different words.


A porridge of enchanting and engrossing imagery.

Entertainment Quotient: 4/5
