Home Body by Rupi Kaur is the third poetry book by her, for which I have waited lonnnngggg and I am sure all the other fans have as well. I read the book immediately it was released and OH MY GOD !!!! I just love it so much. The starting is so beautiful. The book is divided into 4 parts - mind, heart, rest, awake. I can literally see how powerful the writing style of the author has grown in this book.
In this we see her own journey and she fighting through her dark days and growing up against it. We see an intimate and integrate relation between the home and the body, hence the name Home Body. In whatever way Rupi Kaur has written her thoughts in this book, the main point I like her books are because they make me FEEL.

Yes, I've heard a lot of arguments on the fact that Rupi Kaur books are not poetry but just her thoughts penned down well, and in this book also we see alot of poems along with some small paragraphs which are merely focusing on her experience as a Sikh in a Foreign State. Some of them focus on Rape, Body Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Feminism, Immigrant Issues.

But I'll be honest, sometimes its about the words that make you feel the emotions and other minor detailed can be ignored. If you ask me I will ever read any of her future books? My answer is YES, Rupi Kaur's work got me into poetry and I will always cherish her work. Milk and Honey is similar to Home Body, so if you liked Milk And Honey, read this one.
to discover that
the aches i thought
were mine alone
are also felt by
so many others"
One of the best collections so far!
The content is divided into 4 sections: mind, heart, rest and awake.
The most hard-hitting, liberating read for me is the first section which actually made me come out of my comfort zone of thinking and believing in what we women ought to believe.
If reading such lines still make us feel uncomfortable then I feel we still have a long way to go. I feel we need to express ourselves and it's our right to celebrate our bodies and our thoughts which others are so ready to judge and demean.
I find the writing thoroughly genuine and refreshing. I appreciate it more when the author expressed her concern over the unrealistic expectations to write more so that her work would bring her 'more' of what others believe would bring.
The sketches in between presently represents the sentiments behind the lines.
As always, I love her poetry when it brings up issues about mental health, relationships and women. But what I loved more about this collection was the way how the issues of productivity, writing, immigrants and a bit of politics.
I find the cover a bit underwhelming but yes, it's the contents that matter more!
Reading this was eccentric, almost maddening me with ideas, with a tingling sensation all around my body, rushing like current. The feeling of being loved or the feeling of love. That eternal feeling of warmth and electricity flowing through the nerves of your body. These words have the force that "texts" cannot, cause you know who or what he or she is writing about and writing for. Thus even without a single drop of insult falling on the person, the work is done, the arrow is struck deep, into the heart’s core.
People come, people go. Words are the only thing left behind, forever, unaffected by the storm of time. In any form, in mind, in writings but they remain. Those helpless creatures strike the hardest, tell you all of it, taking with them all of you.
This is exactly the book we all needed this lockdown, this is the book that will define the pandemic for many. This will be the souvenir many of us will preserve for ages, to remind what a homebody the world became one doomed year.

This gorgeous book is split into four parts;
Mind explores depression and trauma, expressing the feelings we're all too scared to allow ourselves to feel.
Heart explores the love of not just romantic relationships, but family and friends, and the beauty of community.
Rest explores taking care of oneself and nurturing the soul.
Awake explores empowerment.
And it's all incredibly beautiful.
I was crying on page 12. The beauty of rupi's writing never fails to overwhelm me with love.
our pain is the doorway to our joy

This was my first book from Rupi Kaur, I’m going to get the other two books once I’m done with this.
The words are used so perfectly that can describe every single feeling within us.
