Q1. What is My Black Rose all about ?
It is a poetic tale about never giving up on life. It is one’s journey from the deepest pits of despair to the blazing warmth of hope. The
book aims to inspire its readers to keep fighting like brave warriors, no matter how adverse the situation is. Holding on to hope will surely guide them back to happier days. It talks about mental health and the process of healing in the form of poetry.
Q2. How did you come up with the title?
I wanted the book to be titled so that the message of the book was loud and clear to the readers. A black rose signifies rarity, uniqueness, power and glory. Some may also think it is a bad omen because of its dark colour, but for me, the beauty of it lies
in its shade. By naming the book My Black Rose, I wanted my readers to know that each one of them is unique and beautiful
despite their countless flaws. Like the black rose, I tried to remind them that they are also a miracle of nature.
Q3. What led you to write a poetry book?
My Black Rose came to me naturally when I felt compelled to write a book on mental health in the form of poetry. I wanted to encompass the journey from deep despair to finding hope and healing again, in verse. My Black Rose was the result.
