Certain themes seem to be eternal fonts of inspiration for writers. “Home” is one such. It has been viewed from every conceivable angle and yet has not been understood fully if the books which still keep revisiting the theme are to be believed. In the preface, Basudhara Roy writes,

“These poems in Stitching a Home are an attempt at fostering belonging in our lives, with everything, and despite everything.”

These are poems of moments, places, people, love, and loss. It deeply resonates as a spatial metaphor in everyday exchanges—“home is where the heart is” or “there’s no place like home”.
