    1. Beyond the Scent of Sorrow is a collection of poems by Sweta Srivastava Vikram . I find reviewing poetry books to be difficult. I think either the poems move you, or they do not. When poetry strikes a chord and makes you think and feel, I find that to be a wonderful thing.Through her poems Sweta touches on womens issues in a powerful way. The poems are short, yet they are intense and thought provoking, sometimes in a subtle way. Sweta draws a comparison between how the eucalyptus trees in southw [...]

    2. Beyond the Scent of Sorrow by Sweta Srivastava Vikram is a small collection of poems that draw parallels between nature and women. Reminiscent of Ecofeminism, a political and social combination of feminism and deep ecology that draws parallels between women and nature and calls attention to the misuse of both by patriarchy, Vikram develops a dialogue about the harm done to nature and women across the globe.

    5. This collection is piquantly stirring and sheds much light on the suffering of women trapped in adverse circumstances. From marital rape to forced abortions, these poems show how callously women are still treated and how tortured they feel.
