There’s something lyrical about poetry that is a balm that soothes the soul. Even among the hordes of poetry that exists, there is a once in a while an out-of-box collection and that is what this book is about. Notion Press, India’s leading self-publishing platform, presents The Scent of Ecstasy by Kosha Shah. As you devour the words splayed across the pages, you fall a little more in love with the world with each page you turn.
Interwoven with themes that vary from self-love and gratitude to finding beauty in the most mundane yet whimsical things in everyday life. Perhaps the beauty of this book lies in the unpredictability, not just the unpredictability but also in the raw way it touches on every aspect of our daily lives. There is even a hint of mythology woven within one of the poems that retells the story of Radha-Krishna. There is poetry in the book that urges us to think of mental disorders in the right light. Considering that the language of love is so often conveyed through poetry since times of old, there are quite a few romantic entanglements with other themes.
Kosha Shah is a poet, writer, certified Graphologist and Numerologist. She is a proud Aquarius and a shy, sensitive INFP. She is a die-hard romantic who loves fashion and adores animals. You will often find her talking to animals as though they can understand every word she utters. She sometimes has a tendency to read newspapers from the last page to the first. She loves nature but nature comes hand in hand with snakes and spiders—which terrify her. So, she writes poetry on nature to experience nature without these creepy creatures worrying her. She has a strong dislike for clichés. She can be rebellious, sometimes. She loves to introspect and is on a constant self-improvement drive.
