Description of "Mute Melodies"

“…Mute Melodies comprises the ideal kind of poetry: inspired, imaginative, and intelligent. It is a veritable document of humanity inviting one and all to relish the challenge to empathise, and rejoice at the chance to harmonise. The poetry in the volume deals with themes as varied as love and longing, memories and modernity, religion and/against reason.
Inspiration and the Muses literally serve as the muse of the collection. Manu considers the muse as being an active partner in the creation of poetry, envisioning the poet and the poetic muse as joint creators. Woven into these celebrations or lamentations of muse are allusions from Greek and Indian mythology and literature, leaving behind an impression of beauty in diversity.
Overall, the poems in the collection are not just uplifting, but also interesting. There is earnestness at work here; the lines are sincere and natural, words emerging directly from the soul. And, as for you the reader, dip into these pages, and enter a world, where words, wondrous and weighty, swirl around and drench you, and feel as rejuvenated as you are under a waterfall on a sweltering summer noon….”
