•I keep you alive,
to make me realize, that how courageous was I,
to rebuild my life all over again, knitting its little broken pieces, drenched in shades of pain. •
Tamarind, the title itself excited me, and I couldn’t stop myself from diving into this beauty.
@akhilasbooknook Akhila pens down beautiful poems based on love, loss, longing and life. Divided into five parts, these poems are soulful, making a strong impact on readers’ minds. The name itself is unique and the way the poems are added are unique to, giving readers a different reading experience.
Why Tamarind? That is what I thought from the title, and the poems that came my way answered me. Each poem is a masterpiece. The way she presented and expressed the emotions will give you goosebumps.

With a simple and enchanting writing style, the poems are intense, taking the readers down the memory lane. Akhila, with her words, makes the readers fall in love with life. The simplicity and the way she portrays the emotions are brilliant. With a few words, she creates a place in reader’s hearts.
Poems like two birds fly free, my cousin, fears of the past, and why do we write are my favourite poems from the book. I liked the way she explains the beauty of a relationship with just few words.
•Sometimes I write to recall, sometimes to feel,
sometimes to forget, and
sometimes to just get numb.
I think to get over something,
it is important to relive those moments and to let go of the pain.
And writing is the way to achieve lasting redemption. •
If you love reading poems, do not skip this one. It’s a wonderful book.
Akhila’s Tamarind is a thought-provoking compendium in verse about life and her personal experience of it. Her words—flowing like a river and exuding fragrances of love, loss, longing, and fear—are a heart-tugging testament to the tamarind-like nature of life, sometimes sweet, sometimes sour, and can carry the willing reader down memory lane where lie their own stories, perhaps long forgotten, of love, loss, longing, even fear.
