Senryu, the often neglected cousin of Haiku, is a Japanese form of short poetry similar to Haiku in construction but focusing on human emotions and psychology of the human mind. Consider it as human emotions served in a bite-sized nugget. In this book, I have penned down 8 Senryus for each of 8 fundamental human emotions. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them.
"Evocative and profound, the poems carry a wide range of bare emotions, their simplicity making them immensely relatable. " --Tuhin A Sinha
"Young couples, dead mothers, children, lady in mental asylum, bosses... through these everyday characters, Tanuj captures myriad shades of human emotions in his first collection of haikus, making this Japanese form of poetry very much his own." --(Zafar Anjum) a Singapore-based writer, publisher and filmmaker.
