Closed stories

Of episodes past

Eyes, voices, breath

Life once living

All shut one day

Is each one of us a storied monument



Waiting to be



Replete with rich imagery and striking metaphors, Sindhoor’s poems are stories, lyrical and powerful: of woman as a goddess, luminous but fiery; of a woman draped in tradition but not bound by it; of a woman as a nurturing mother; of a woman defying destiny; of a woman living through loss and yearning for exquisite fulfilment... These poems, her ‘textured words’, crafted with fluid ease, will leave their impress on the reader, sometimes subtle, sometimes strong.

Sindhoor’s Eight Armed Goddess is mysteriously attractive, has lustrous eyes, a beautiful face, is bejeweled, draped in red silk, and carries hidden weapons. She is fearless, can carry ‘venom’, and yearns for ‘freedom’ from a claustrophobic existence. She is any woman – a doting daughter, a young maiden, a bride, a lover, a wife, a mother… who has experienced transformation. The metamorphosis is not easy but painful. She carries hurt and passion like a devouring flame. She is misunderstood. But in truth, she is Love and only Love. This collection of poems is a treasure of gems, artistically crafted to perfection with wonderful use of words. The poems touch your heart. In other words, one should not miss reading ‘Eight Armed Goddess’.
