Review on “the sun and her flowers” by Rupi Kaur.

REVIEW :

Rupi Kaur’s words are an art by themselves. Be it Feminism or Human Empowerment, she bags a medal with her very poetry. If observed keenly, it seems she has penned down the salty experience of life of which most of us are prisoners as well.

Simple yet thought provoking, “the sun and her flowers” is being split into five sections wherein each section talks of a different theme. I loved the way Kaur has vividly compared each section of a flower’s life in coherent to that of we humans.

Wilting deals with grief – the moment of a flower death.
Falling is self-abandonment – when a flower loses all hopes to live.
Rooting deals with honorship – when a new flower prepares its roots to rise again
Rising is for self love – that’s when the flower is ready bloom once more.
Blooming is meant to keep empowering oneself – blooming with flowers and living again.

The line drawings and minimalists are brilliant, making poems more intense. At places, I find the sentences are abruptly broken but that doesn’t mean it steals away the beauty. The kind of pain she has portrayed can only be felt by most Indians when living in this patriarchal society becomes a curse. Most importantly, when marital pressure pushes you to be a victim rather than raising your voice against.

Undoubtedly the book is a revolution but in my opinion it isn’t as engaging as “milk and honey”.

My overall ratings 4.5 / 5. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
