Pihu's life is an open book.Her journey from age nine to the time she has her first sip of wine is chronicled through fifty poems and commentaries on her life. Split up into three sections, this book chronicles the first phase, when Pihu is nine; the second, when she is a teenager; and the third, when she transitions into adulthood.
Pihu’s journey through life is essayed against the backdrop of the streets of Delhi. As she blossoms into a young woman from a little girl, Pihu lives her life on her own terms, and comes to understand that life is so much more than just the people around her. She embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, and faces everything from incomparable happiness to the pain of a heartbreak, from the myriad ways of the business world and the competitive rat-race, to simply following her dreams on a whim.
The poems are interspersed with a simple and light narrative that takes the reader on a journey with Pihu's life and its many trials and tribulations. These poems, albeit in verse, are thoroughly relatable narratives.Each poem helps you reconnect with your inner self, through relatable experiences narrated in Pihu's own words.
Khyati Sharma is a post-graduate student at Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kolkata and is an alumnus of the College of Business studies (CBS), Delhi University. She has worked for eight years in the financial services sector. She believes that if one can be creative and analytical at the same time, it is easy to discover the fruits never tasted before.
Her first lifeline is to analyze. She loves to plug and play with numbers to create models. All the personal journals that she has maintained since childhood reflect this trait. Most of her journal entries have too many ifs and buts, pros and cons and even charts. The second lifeline is people. She loves to learn about people, their challenges, what motivates and drives them, and their stories.She developed her own list of not-safe and safe topics to discuss with people to reduce the argument and conversation rate from 1:1 to 1:30. Her last and biggest lifeline is to write poems.
