Yellow by Urja Joshi is a very beautiful book full of verses. This book has two parts - Mohi and Kabir.
How well is this thoughtful and unconventional way to portray the cycle of Hurt and Heal. Mohi is not only a character, but a phase in everyone's life that hurts us deeply. Kabir on the other hand is the arrival of healing process.
The book starts with Mohi. Filled with beautiful abstract illustrations on each page, the relevant verses touch us and remind us that somepoint in our lives or the other we have been hurt in various ways. We all are or have struggled to be understood by the outside world and sometimes the inner world was more to be understood by our ownselves. When we searched high and low for the touch of love, loosing our own identity to get blended with the conventional notions of being the best, got abused or maltreatments while our self love and esteem bid us goodbye.
Then the Healing part comes in. Here the verses instill in us the strength and hope needed to overcome these barriers for our souls to shine bright, appreciate ourselves for who we are and once again learn to love!
Beautifully presented, the book's content feels soothing to my soul when ever I read it and I hope all readers will feel it's magic.
