Details for The Sound of Silence
All the things that make you strong,
Come only once life has broken you;
Like the sky with colours, right or wrong,
Shall best be known for its shades of blue.
The Sound of Silence, Akanksha G. Mittal’s debut collection of poems, is a poignant exploration of themes including love, longing, loss, melancholia, liberation and euphoria.
Thoughtfully crafted, each poem weaves a cautionary tale for the wandering heart, while it upholds a fragile, yet tenacious belief in life and light. With its evocative imagery,
The Sound of Silence, presents an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of emotions in the course of a sinuous journey called Life.
