It’s like looking into a mirror.




Thoughts layer verse as the poet laces each line with sharp nuances that prompt you to think.

Here, Suddenly then indeed becomes a word laced with irony. Is life sudden? Is the human need for love sudden?

Or is this thought that the young poet echoes, sudden?

We live more in our heads,

don't we?

Life is never simple. Celebrate and turn the pages as your relive your ideas, your deepest thoughts in the verses in this delicately nuanced book of poetry.

A daughter like Astha Pareek comes to this world only to bring joy to herself and to all those around her. She formed an essential part of the 2007 batch of BITS, Pilani. Astha was studious and in her first semester she got full ten points. However, she had different dreams and aspirations. In the coming semesters she strove to achieve excellence in other facets of student life. She was an amazing dancer, who performed several dance forms on stage through her school and college years. She also had great command over the English language. Astha weaved out several poems, songs, short stories and shared them through her blog. She also composed some of her own songs. Posthumously, her work in Oracle in the MYSQL team as a software engineer was given a very special acknowledgement in America on 30 September 2014.She had this one big dream – writing a book then sitting in a bookshop and signing copies for the people who came to buy her books. But the dreamer was shattered in an accident in the valleys of Sikkim, where she had gone with her friends and colleagues before leaving for the USA to pursue her Master’s degree in Computer Science. Heartbroken, but determined to fulfill her intense desire to become an author and publish a book in her name, her parents decided to bring her dream come true.

The dreamer is gone, but the dream lives on.
