With Blue Ink Of The Oceans

By Anu Joshy

“Like a matured painter who is very particular in choosing the right and profound colours to draw a masterpiece, Anu has exhibited abundance of talent as a conscious artist in choosing the right words and putting them at the right place in her compositions for effectively creating the magic of lovely poetic creations”- R. K. Das, Director, Rajya Sabha, Parliament of India (‘Of The Lesser Known’)
“Anu has good talent, command and control of words and has fruitful imagination. The poetess appears to be a sensitive soul which reminds us of the old saying, ‘the heart has its own reasons that the head cannot understand”- Dr. Alexander Jacod, I.P.S (‘When My Heart Speaks”)

Anu Joshy’s poetry stands out for its universal appeal with great depth of thought, sensitivity to issues, power of expressions and refreshing honesty. It is captivating to see how she entraps the delicate emotions of the human heart and the nuances of relationships in her poems. Her identity and perception as a woman stands out stark in her poetry. Her third collection of poems ‘With Blue Ink of the Oceans’ is a candid mirror that she holds against her soul and the society. The beauty of her poetry lies in the truth that in that mirror we can see our own reflections.
