Book Review : Come Rhyme With Me

Book Review : Come Rhyme With Me

Come Rhyme With Me is written by Mary Kunte and published by Virgin Leaf Books of Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd. Its a collection of poem written in simple rhyme. I have received this book from the publishers. 



Cover : By seeing the cover you got the feel that book has poems for children. I like the cover design because it is simple yet catchy for the readers. 

Content : Book contains poems written by poetess in different style and forms. It has twenty poems of VERSE & RHYME style, four poems in ACROSTIC POEMS category, eight poems for RICTAMETER, twelve HAIKU, one ONOMATOPOEIA style poem and four songs. In short it has almost all style of poems for the readers neatly arranged without creating any confusion for readers. It also describes what a particular type of poem stands for making it easy to understand for the readers. 

Comment : I like the idea of compiling different styles of poem in this poetry book. The poems written in simple rhyme have social messages, natural beauty, emotional bonds, imaginative situations and poetess's different thoughts expressed in a page, few sentences as in Rictameter or few lines as in Haiku. I liked many poems like Anger, Night, Life, Cornucopia, Alone, Bombay, Daughter, Sunset, Jai Hind My India, etc. Poetess's thoughts were clearly presentable and understandable. But these poems are too simple and flat for those who demand deep meanings, allegory, metaphors or sufi touch in the poems. There is no such poem which made you think about it. I would also prefer some pictures with poems perhaps this would increase reading pleasure. 

Verdict : There is no harm in reading it. Its short and you can read it in one go. 

Rating : I would give it 2.5/5 

You can buy it from Amazon

  1. Sometimes I feel bored to find only one topic or style in a poetry book. Looks like this has a variety. Good review.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
