About the Book


“The Sixth Finger is a collection of poems that spells out remarkable poetic finesse, graceful depiction of imagination and realistic display of feelings. It embodies themes that bring together past with a thoughtful present in anticipating mindful discernment into the future. The words are knit with effortless ease and adroit swiftness to attract the reader in the journey along with the mood of poetic creativity. There is a certain integrity the poet exhibits in presenting situations and incidents close to her heart which in turn could transfer to the reader influentially with its tender artistry. Ingenuity and engaging nature of the lines bring freshness to this collection.”

From the “Foreword” by Dr. P. Prayer Elmo Raj, Assistant Professor,
