Some things come from elsewhere – not from us, but through us. These ninety-nine simple prayer poems reflect Jagruti’s quest for connecting with The Source from the depth of her being. They are about our lives and our world today.The poems give voice to what is soundless in many.
These poems are unique because they span several themes – celebration of the simplicity of everyday life, desperation and anguish of modern times, a yearning for profound silence and about profound love. They are straight from the heart and evoke the dual reality of what it means to be both human and divine.
The stunning charcoal art, by Nidhi Aggarwal, coaxes the prayers into full bloom.
