About the Book
This book is about many unspoken words, questions and conflicts about values, tradition, modernity, love, sacrifice, rebellion, patience, ambition, etc., that she had in her mind being the eldest daughter of a middle-class family. She expresses these complex emotions and questions in simple words through her poems. She also takes up simple, seemingly mudane events and emotions and expresses them in depth in her poetry. Selections from a range of emotions expressed by her from her early ages have been compiled as Parag aur Pankhudiyaan, which the readers often feel as an expression of their own.

About the Author
Seema Kumar is professionally a designer and design faculty, with a passion for art and writing. She is a graduate (B.A.) with Drawing and Painting (Honours), Master of Design (M.Des.) with Knitwear Design, and pursuing Ph.D. (Design). Her poems have been published in poetry collections, magazines, and blogs.
According to Leonardo da Vinci, 'Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.' Art, in different forms, is her passion since childhood. She likes to draw and paint, design, juggle with words and write, giving shape to imagination in different forms and cannot imagine her existence without being a part of all these, actively or passively.
