For Rhyme or Reason is written in both rhyme and free verse and its myriad forms of poetry portray a vivid tapestry of thought and emotion. Sanjula's journey charts a course that moves from despair to joy.

The Temple by Indian poet Sanjula Sharmareminded me of Tagore. The resolution at the end is very subtle.

 

- Antony Johae, poet & Prof, Kuwait University

 

The Temple is very beautiful. Loved its premise, texture and tone.

                        - Asian age

                         

The anthology To be Mortal is an evocative ode to the notions of mortality and immortality written in both rhyme and free verse. For Delhi based poet Sanjula Sharma, poetry writing is an exercise that emanates straight from the heart.

- NawaidAnjum, journalist

 

Freelance journalist and author Sanjula Sharma pens immortal verses in her third book To Be Mortal. The verses are splendid and unique and the poems combine an ancient view of philosophy with a very modern outlook.
