Pankajam and her ‘Whispering Waves’
|by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy|
Much like the title, this Collection of Poems by K. Pankajam is soft and gentle as if some wave swept under your feet unobtrusively, leaving behind a few grains of sand in between the toes as a reminder! Her poems are like a gentle tap on the shoulder, subtly drawing your attention to this or that – never hard-hitting, yet impactful!
Sounds like a familiar feeling, as all of us, sometime or the other, are hit by forgetfulness. But it takes a Pankajam to express it so beautifully...
Ever heard nostalgia expressed thus?
Pankajam’s compassion is well reflected in these lines from ‘I Want to Cry’:
Her concerns about price rise come through excellently in her poem ‘Onion’ that takes an interesting episode from Mahabharata and likens it to the current inflationary scenario:
This poem is followed by ‘Tonight Vishnu Sobs in My Arms’, an amazingly intense poem written with Pankajam’s usual simplicity and economy of words, yet leaving a lasting imprint.
The poems ‘The Scars’ and ‘The Power of Unspoken Words’ placed alongside each other in the book, represent two diametrically opposite themes, yet resonate with a heart warming appeal.
