Published in 2016 by Simurg, an imprint of Kitaab International Pte. Ltd Rooh se Rooh tak, a collection of poems by Candy de Launey explores dimensions of love and fury,
sadness and joy and quiet truths about the variety of human emotions … where soul and body and emotion and consciousness are never separate but a part of the great mystery of life, a riddle whose answer perhaps is love … or perhaps not … with all its fears, longings, expressions and suppressions … dying to take the
risk of discovering her own core self …
The 25 Poems are all in English, and only one is in Hindi of which 6 are musical
recitations which have been composed beautifully by Anand Dhamelia and
Vijutash Angurana and available on Sound cloud.

wake up the senses.
