This book is about those silent spaces between humans that are left vacant and overlooked but they gradually turn into pits and swallow the entirety of existence, if not addressed.
Living in a world where feeling things a little too much can be a weakness and stepping over someone’s throat can be empowering, these poems were written in silence for the silent, trying to offer them words. These poems speak eloquently about vulnerability and how that is just alright!
After completing MBBS and currently pursuing a career in Psychiatry, Dr Shandana has always found solace in writing rather than speaking out loud the “words” of this mad world. It started from a few sentences here and sometimes there (during class or exam) to writing down on any piece of paper in sight, as words started pouring out of her pen. She knew writing was the way out not only for her but so many who preferred silence over chaos. And that was actually proven when she started her writings page on the Instagram “sentience_the_scribbles”.
