After celebrating and winding up the success of her debut poetry book, yellow: the verses of hurting & healing. urja joshi has put a comma if not a full stop to her active writing on social media. And at this point no one can help but ask themselves if this is a necessary break after the release and promotion of yellow, that she very well deserved or is it the calm before storm. One of the many predictions can be that she is preparing for her next come back later this year, but again nothing can top the announcement that comes directly from her. Keeping in mind author urja joshi’s versatility and talents of writing in various genres, the biggest question again is that, is the next release going to be a poetry or something different. As the free press talked about her and claimed that she has given 3 books to her audience in 3 different genres, which is not expected and wildly talented of any author her age. Not only that but as of critical analysis this can be one of the most important releases of joshi as she is at a very crucial stage of her career. She is in positive attention as of now and we have nothing but greater expectations from her next book, this might be very pressurizing for her, but we are sure, she will deliver nothing but excellency.
we are looking forward to it , are you as well?
More About Urja Joshi:
Ms. Joshi is the author of Yellow the verses of hurting and healing. She goes ahead and describes Yellow in the title as apt and that it does justice to the book. This book was all about delivering a message to people, that there is always good waiting for you at the end, and that light is always going to find you, no matter where you hide, it will always come to you. And of course, when your book consists of a moral which can be delivered, only through duality, it becomes a challenge to select a title that serves the purpose.
Since the book was about 2 phases: hurting and then healing, Mohi and Kabir, the name yellow does justice to it. When I first thought of naming the book yellow my first idea was that this color represents both of these emotions. I simply went by this ideology that if I go out during autumn I can see yellow leaves and the death, so it’s like yellow color is marking the end of something, death of a season or grief but if it’s spring then you can see yellow-colored flowers all over again which means that yellow is also a very good symbol of birth, that’s how I approved this idea, that yellow is all about duality and that’s exactly what I want my readers to perceive.”
The author is a believer in miracles and she believes that even if the book isn’t perfect, She is immensely proud of it and that she worked for it hard. Upon asking about gender norms and how she would go about shattering them in her writing she said Gender norms do not exist, we constructed them inside our heads, and we are a lot harsh to people who are like us than those who are different from us.
The community of men gets more conservative towards men who wear makeup or jewelry or choose to have no facial hair than women ever will. And I can swear by this that this is the same case within the women’s world. And I am not a fan of this, I will never support a rule book that says that a gender has to be, dress, behave a certain way to justify that they are, what they claim to be.
