Mental health is of prime importance as nowadays we are all the time engaged online and offline into a gamut of chores. Yes, it is true that mental health begins with a free mind. A mind that is aware of its responsibilities yet does not take extra burden on its nerves.
There have been scores of seminars, research papers, YouTube videos, self-help books that profess its importance. On similar lines, we see creative efforts by Kishore Kumar Das through his poetry book ‘Towards a Free Mind’.
The book is a collection of poems that fosters the mental health. Most of the poems are written that tell us how to set the mind free. The collection starts with “Make Mind Free” poem that lays emphasis on free mind and to support its assumption it narrates the example of a free route, it says with traffic and congestion, the travel will be tough. In fact, in many poems the author put many simple yet effective examples for better understanding. Being free with mind is one’s birth right.
Next poem is about caging the mind. It says that our social parameters set us in cage, thus our mind feels fretted and heavy. In one of the poems it is given the Learn to Ignore (lti) is a best remedy for free mind. This poem qualifies for some great applaud. All the poems are great in stature and lucidly presented that even naïve or first-time reader of poetry will like the book. Deconditioning is another gem in the collection. Speed to Free the Mind is all about this only.
The collection is highly inspiring yet fascinating for laymen. Before concluding the review, we would like to insert a few lines from some of the poems. It will give you the idea as how brilliant and simple our author Kishore is.
“Unless road is free
Vehicle can’t move
Traffic jam shall occur
Unless mind is free”
“Ease can reduce anger
Ease can curtail pain
Ease amidst difficulties
The real strength of life.”
Clearly, the poetry is saying to free the mind but it also expresses other virtues that keep one free from stress and unwanted things.
Overall, it’s a brilliant and inspiring collection that can be referred for mood soothing. Kishore has put lovely efforts to promote the importance of mental health.
