The word ‘lei’ refers to a garland or a wreath in Hawaiian language. In Hawaii, visitors, on arrival, are greeted with a warm ‘aloha’ and adorned with beautiful, fresh ‘lei’ as a symbol of affection. The word ‘lei’ also means flower in Manipuri language, which is spoken in Manipur, a state in the north eastern India.
Each poem, in the book is like a fragrant flower, meant to celebrate life, generate positivism, soothe, inspire, nourish and rejuvenate the Soul.
The book is composed of four sections: Nature, Life, Inspiration and Illusion. Most of the short poems are written following the Japanese style of micro-poetry (a Haiku or a Tanka).
The poems illustrated with soothing imagery, are layered and imaginative, very short and simple to read, and convey a deeper meaning or bring out a new tinge of emotion every time you read them.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started writing poetry on my blog mainly out of interest. The excellent response that I got from the readers, some of whom are themselves exceptional writers and authors inspired me to compile the poems into an anthology and publish the book ‘Lei: A wreath for your soul’.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Woken from slumber
Waves welcome the rising sun
Does not heed to the dark
With its shimmering light,
Moon quietly bathes the ocean
