Chand Ki Rotiby Proiti Roy
This book has lullabies that are still unsung. It’s rhythm is effortless. Language is as transparent as sugar. Read it twice and you would learn it. Notice the beauty of its expression,
Chand ki Roti,
pani mein aayi,
machhli phir bhi,
kha na payi.
A lot is left unsaid in this poem. This is the space a child needs to play with language and imagination. And no one is too old for language games.
Proiti Roy has beautifully illustrated these lullaby-like poems.
