Sarala Kunhambu marks her publishing debut with the release of “Rosebuds: A Collection of Poems on Love and Life” (published by Partridge Singapore).
This book of poetry talks about life in general and emphasises the nature of love with all its ensuing problems. Each poem is down-to-earth, realistic and imbibes certain aspects of Hinduism. It reflects true-life experiences that many can easily relate to.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, the author says, “A feeling of satisfaction when people are able to identify themselves with the matters and problems mentioned in the poems.”
A snippet from the poem “A Fact of Life” reads:
Time creeps by quietly.
are but dusty memories.
hateful words were nothing,
but sounds of the moment.
Open wounds heal
true and well,
leaving not even
a scar behind!

About the Author
Sarala Kunhambu was a science teacher by profession. She retired from the teaching profession in November 2008. Some of her poems were written in her early 20s, 30s and 50s. After retirement, she decided to compile all these short poems into a book. That was how “Rosebuds” emerged. Kunhambu has published a second book titled “Strange Stories – Tales of the Paranormal.” She is now working on her third book — a book of longer poems, which would probably be completed in early 2023.
