Sumana Bhattacharjee's 'Eternal Thought' unearth the myriad thoughts of the human mind
By: Notion Press
It is often believed that the human mind is never idle but is constantly on a voyage of thought. The mind is always in the search of newer vistas of imagination, both consciously and unconsciously. Many such ideas aren't invited or purposely brought into the stream of thought, but they are born abruptly and disappear gradually, making way for fresher ones. Akin to the waves of an ocean, thoughts are incessantly moving, going around in whirls in the mind. The mind is fond of creating and re-creating ideas, questioning and analysing them.
The enigmatic ways of the mind are better expressed in verse than in prose. The fluid nature of the medium helps in unravelling the mystifying whorls in an appealing fashion. The mind is a very tender subject of discussion and so are the allied plethora of emotions. Multi-layered and multi-hued, these emotions are captured and transmuted into exquisite poetry by the poet. Like a boundless fountain, the mind churns out waves of ideas which when reaches the pen-tip of Suma Bhattacharjee, metamorph into soulful verse. The poet has also ensured to bring to life tiny, trivial incidents with a dash of imagination, wherein the reader is also able to connect effectively with the scene. The rendering is simple yet profound with unpretentious language, making it easily comprehendible. Thought streams picked up from a commoner's mind, 'Eternal Thought' is evocative and stirs the soul.
Published by Notion Press, the book 'Eternal Thought' is currently available on Notion Press bookstore, Amazon, Flipkart and Infibeam.
