A poet's soul simply is. You can't kill it, hide it or shame it away. It will string and weave. One dons many hats, but it sits within silently as a patient observer. This soul though, roams the world by day and streams in by night, one silken strand after another, sometimes even a tangled mess.
Renowned scholar Abhijita Kulshrestha is a Vedic Astrologer, Astro Gemologist, NLP Practitioner, Poetess and Life Coach. At present she is the Director, chief Astrologer & Gemologist at Gemstone Universe.
With her first book, Ambrosia Sides, Abhijita is all set to enthral poetry lovers. Ambrosia Sides is a collection of poems that are free-flowing compositions. And while they are diverse in themes, they have been categorised into the Trinity construct-Brahma, the deity of creation where all things begin; Vishnu, the deity of preservation where desire fuels preservation and Shiva, the deity of destruction, where endings prevail.
A voracious reader and a humanist, Abhijita believes that any ordinary life becomes extraordinary once it finds its purpose. Abhijita’s thirst for knowledge and the desire to explore new avenues led her to this path where she discovered her own true purpose. The initiation into the fascinating world of words for Abhijita wasn't a surprise as she always had a natural inclination towards the craft of writing. Her literary journey started very early, owing to her affection for this medium of expression. She has had a long stint as a writer and has worked with some big names in the media industry like Bennett & Coleman, R K Swamy BBDO and MICA.
When she is not writing, a self-confessed logophile Abhijita, likes to read a good book. She holds a Master's degree in Mass Communication from Panjab University, Chandigarh.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
