The 23 year old author Ishani states that even though one has scars from the past, there always comes a day when these scars start to shine. By using her own life instances, Ishani bonds with the readers instantly as the poems are extremely relatable and heart pinching.
Dubey said, “Both reading and writing poetry has had a therapeutic influence on me. This book started as a diary for me until I realised that I needed to reach out to all the beautiful humans who doubt their capabilities and worth due to their current state of mental health. I truly believe that the we all have experienced the dark in some form or other but it has shaped us. I truly believe that the light comes through one day or the other and all the scars start to shine.”
The book has been recommended by eminent personalities of the industry like R Madhavan, Gulpanag and Padmakalli Banerjee.
