Proud Mohanlal announces book release of daughter's 'Grains of stardust'
It is a collection of her painting and poetry, encompassing ideas of love, art and creativity.
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal announces the arrival of daughter Vismaya Mohanlal's poetry book, 'Grains of Stardust'. In a social media post, Mohanlal wrote that,
"'Grains of Stardust' came together unexpectedly. I didn't sit down with the intention to write a poetry book. As you'll see when you read them, they are very simply written. They are poems that I sometimes typed out on my phone waiting for the subway or while I was listening to a beat that I liked, or words that came to me when I was looking at a painting or at nature," Vismaya, an artist whose interests lie in the realms of fine art, poetry and performance quoted saying.
Read my poetry out loud
Breathe it in
and taste the letters pour out.
A delicious sound.
Do you hear the colours take form?
Feel the pages move you
as you float in space
make some space
Open your mind
and get inside
and see all that
| Excerpts from 'Grains of stardust' |
The book's foreword is written by Mohanlal.
"Offering a unique expression of thought reflecting feeling more than meaning, 'Grains of Stardust' is a synesthetic stream of consciousness that does not distinguish between journey and destination, but meanders unchecked upon the river of human emotion," writes the 60-year-old actor.
