Rhythm in Blues eulogises people, places, things and events and explains them in ways that cements the idea that poetry need not be convoluted to be beautiful, and far-fetched to be understood. In this anthology of twenty-one poems, Sahej Marwah draws experiences from the mundane, and things that often go unnoticed. On a quest to find beauty in simplicity, words are carved in manners that are easily understood while having the same resounding echo. This anthology also covers social stigmas such as racism, anxiety and blindness. With the help of poetic devices and an attempt to recreate her version of reality, the author portrays her belief that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, day after dawn, and indeed, rhythm in blues.
Sahej Marwah is not a conundrum. She's an amalgamation of ideas distilled into an honest, lucid statement. Her poetry, simple and unencumbered, echoes its creator. While she is still in college, she has accumulated experience in the advertising world, media, and the performance space. She also creates art, often painting her poems and writing her paintings. Her work, across various media, underlines her need to search for the clearest, most honest perspective.
Her abilities are geared towards telling the truth, and she does so otherwise too, her grit belied by a gentle voice, and a gentler persona. A wicked, silver tipped tongue, and a brilliant, sapphire encrusted mind all work together to wind beautiful narratives. She is, at her most basic core, a problem solver.
Sahej is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Arts from Jai Hind College, Mumbai. Rhythm in Blues is her first collection.
