Book Review: Water Has Many Colors by Dr. Kiriti Sengupta

1 min read

Ajanta Paul reviews Dr. Kiriti Sengupta’s poetry collection Water Has Many Colors (Published by Hawakal Publishers, 2022) calling it a powerful collection that works on multiple registers.

“Poetry is eternal graffiti written in the heart of everyone.”

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Seen this way, poetry is the language of the soul scrawled across the walls of human communities – spontaneous, stirring, and, frequently subversive. Dr Kiriti Sengupta’s latest literary offering, Water Has Many Colors refracts the rays of a radiant vision that splits into a rainbow of reflections. The poems in the mentioned collection encourage the notion that poetry, like water, is a source, substance, and sustenance of life, an element essentially colourless that yet shines with the myriad hues of its environment.
