THE WISE AND THE WASTED Novel in verse

Author Name: CHANDNI CHOPRA | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

“Wisdom may belong to the wise, 

but the journey, belongs to the wasted.

Always wandering, hopelessly dreaming.

Faltering, learning

forever seeking.

And darling,

if this is not life

then what is?

 

A passional mother, shielding her child from an archetypal society. An estranged father, disappearing without a warning. A loyal lover, who’s a victim of his conditioning. A free spirited artist, in search of his truth. A curious daughter, set to find her own trajectory.

 

What happens as they set out on their own journeys? What happens when their paths intertwine?

 

This book explores what it means to live in a world that doesn’t always hear and tell the story of individuals who defy norms and reason convention. Following the novel in verse narrative, the book carefully follows the journey and graph of each character. The story delves into current cultural conversations including mental health, sexual abuse, displacement as well as timeless themes of love, passion and art. The poetically weaved verses, subtly impel the readers to have more perspectives than just one and ultimately follow their hearts.

This book is for all the dreamers, the seeker and the hopeless wanderers. For the change makers, the courageous and also the ones who’ve quietly wept at nights. Read it and relate- and if not then observe and be kind to next person you meet.
