We Are Braver Than We Know Poems and writings penned during the covid pandemic, lockdowns and beyond...

Author Name: Mira Midha | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

The COVID pandemic......we were all in it, the entire world. It was surreal but it happened. There was isolation, pain, tragedies and fear. It had become quiet and in that silence, I wrote about all that I felt and saw around me and on ‘breaking news’ updates. The migrants' exodus, the graveyard-like stillness, a claustrophobia of being shut inside, caused us all a lot of anguish and heartache.   When we finally emerged, I continued writing and penning poems. I had changed, I think we all had changed. I became, very emotionally aware of my surroundings.
For many, who live in this struggle called 'life', the pandemic was just another episode in this formidable game called survival. 

They come from all walks of life......the poverty-stricken, differently-abled, transgender, mentally challenged, women who battle with their souls, between right and wrong, so that they can stay alive. The homeless vendors at traffic signals and so many more people of indomitable will, carrying deep scars from a life in poverty.
I put my feelings down on paper as a tribute to these determined and fearless men and women who continue existing, enduring, against all odds.

There is a wistful beauty in old homes and ruins, fractured by the passage of time. I wonder what stories and mysteries are buried in their bricks and broken waIls. I put down my sentiments, my feelings, on this and more in my book of prose and poems, 'We are braver than we know’

Mira Midha

Mira started writing poetry as a young teenager. She put every emotion she felt into her poems. The book and pen were her comfort zones. It was much later in life that she decided to share her collection, and she published her first book in 2014. Since then, she has published three more books of poetry. In this, her fifth book, she has penned poems along with anecdotes inspired by experiences.

Apart from writing, she loves painting and strongly feels one form of art compliments the other. Mira has made her home in Pune, India, and lives there with her husband, a retired Naval Officer.
