  • About the book

    Petals of Melancholy is a poetry collection that meets you when you least expect it, like a beloved does.

    A balm that cold-burns when confronted, despite our resistance born out of hopelessness; poetry validates the pain that resides, and then soothes it, reaching deep ends from within.

    With no judgment and no pretense, Petals of Melancholy walks you through raw and real emotions with powerful vulnerability and dissolves into you as a warm embrace that you kept longing for.

    Fulfilling a crucial need that you were unaware about, Varsha Alimchandani’s poetry comforts and validates your innermost thoughts, conciliating the wounded parts you have desperately packed away in your emotional baggage.

    Tinged with the beauty of heartbreak that comes from weariness of existence, society, family,  love, loss, art, mental health, healing and femininity, you find a loyal friend that sees you; walks hand in hand with you, making life bearable and worthwhile.
