पुस्तक समीक्षा – मनसा eBook Review – Mansa by Rashi Roy


पुस्तक का नाम – मनसा ।

लेखिका – राशी रॉय ।

शैली – कविताएं ।

यूँ तो  “मनसा” अर्थात मन से उत्पन्न  कुछ कवितायेँ होता है , परन्तु लगता है कवियत्री ने पाठक के मन में भी झाँका हैं |


मैं समझ नही पा रही हूँ कि शुरुआत कहाँ से और कैसे करूँ । इतनी बेहतरीन और उम्दा कविताओं को पढ़कर मैन प्रफुल्लित हो गया । हालांकि कविताओं की संख्या सिर्फ ८ है, परन्तु उनमे जो भाव है वो अनगिनत है । किताब तीन भागों में है । कवित्री ने पहले भाग “रिश्ते” में किसी भी इंसान के सबसे महत्वपूर्ण दो रिश्ते ‘माँ’ और ‘पिता’ के ऊपर अदभुद रचनाये रची है । दूसरे भाग”देशप्रेम” में हमारे देश के प्रति जो वीर रस की रचना की है वो अवश्य ही पाठकों के हृदय में भाव उत्पन्न करेंगे । तीसरे और अंतिम भाग में इन्होंने “मन से” निकली कुछ कविताएं लिखी है जो सीधे सीधे पाठक के मन को छूती है ।


एक बात जो मुझे नही भाई वो ये की एक बार पढ़ना शुरू करते ही बहुत जल्द समाप्त हो गई । अगर कुछ और कविताये होती तो बेहतर होता ।


कुछ अंश जो मेरे मन को भा गए  –


माँ –

ये बात जुबां पे कभी आयी नहीं की मुझको कितना प्यार है माँ से,

सच तो ये है की मेरी हर सांस है माँ से |


बाबा – 

आज भी रोती हूँ छुपके जब भी बाबा की याद आती है..


अगर आप कविताओं में रूचि रखते है तो आपको यह पुस्तक अवश्य पढनी चाहिए | अपनी प्रति डाउनलोड करे यहाँ से

Who shall I be today ??

Source : Sunita Saldhana


About the Writer : Sunita Saldhana, is absolutely the one who not only lives her life but observe the emotions and pen them down. She calls herself, “a retired mom”, and is now enjoying a full time writer’s life. She started writing at an age of 13, and now in early 50s she is inspiring many others.

One line review – 40 Poems and even more faces and emotions of a woman.

There are two types of writings : Number one – is penning down one’s own feelings and emotions which s/he is going through or have had seen in past. Number two – imaginary i.e. not experienced personally. After reading Sunita Saldhana’s poems i wonder if she ever have had gone through ALL of these ?? And if yes then it takes a great courage to give words to some harsh feelings (I love you but.. ;  Just a little Glad)

Being a woman is not at all easy. She has to go through a lot. Being a daughter to seeing her own daughter getting married. Experience and understand her husband and in-laws. Be a mother, watching the baby walk and then slowly fleeing the nest. Among all these she has a small corner of “her very own self”. Witnessing the loneliness, going through that terrifying silence, wearing a different mask every other day.

With a great start on how “words” help her or anyone and what role they play the entire life, writer successfully scribbled all the sentiments through a woman’s glasses.

My thought for a poem was small, crisp and rhyming words. Sunita Saldhana defies this and shows that rhyming and small lines are not mandatory for a great heart touching poem.

Every lady must definitely read this. It shows simple and sometimes complex things going on in a woman’s life in simple words. Their is nothing so much special about the book. Reader does not have to scratch the head for making out the interpretation alike most of the poems. Nothing vague but everything clear. This books just depicts the most common and regular thoughts of a lady. And that is it. Simple straight truth from the heart.

It shows different roles of a women. From a daughter, lover, teacher to mother and a house wife. Different phases a woman goes through is so finely expressed. Love, fear, desire, hurt, pain, and the courage to overcome everything.

A woman can never be “just” a woman.

What I liked most is the magic book has. While reading, there was a constant smile on my face. Happy smile and more of  a smile of pity. I started and I cannot put away the book until I finished the last page. I read it twice. Sunita Saldhana gave Sorrow, pain and distress a larger pie than happiness and joy. To young readers, that may push down with its low vibes. It could have been better if she would have talked more of positive part of a woman’s life.
