About the Author:
Chandni Kapur is the author of five books of poetry — Reflections (1992), Lurking Shadows (1997), Embers, Ash & Dust (1999), Karma (2001) and The Looking Glass (2004). She believes The Other Face has been strongly influenced by her own experiences of contemporary traumatic incidents like the Punjab terrorism of the 1980s, the Mumbai floods of 2005 and the Mumbai terrorist attacks of 2008. She lives with her husband, Amit, and son, Kartikay, in Mumbai.

Teaser:

The telling

a season’s look
telling and guessing
departed feelings
chasing rainbows
weathering a turmoil
waving the storm
to rest unrested
till the untold’s told.
