Swapna Behera writes fluently with style and grandeur. Her work evokes a deep feeling of love and questions our eternal relation with nature and life as a whole. Reading through I have a feeling I was led through a door into my inner-self. This makes her poetry so unique and so penetrative about the things we seem to take for granted in the daily reality of life.
