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

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…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
