Kohima, April 25 (NEx): ‘Pinks & Greys’, a poetry book written by Kebana Thou, is the debut book by the author published by Dimapur Publishing Company. The book was launched on April 17, 2021, by Rev Dr Mongzeung Mpom, Pastor, Jalukie Town Local Baptist Church.
The book contains a collection of 111 poems portraying the life of a regular woman, who, like any other, faces the bright and dark sides of the world. Pinks reveal her lighter side brimmed with humour and satire. Greys portray her more serious facet effusing the accumulated experiences of her life. There is also a tinge of rebellion at the monotony of conventional and societal bonds.
In his speech, Rev. Mpom talked about how the book can be a reflection of many women in the modern world today. He also added that the book is profound but written in a way that every status of the society can grasp the thoughts of the author meaningfully.
The programme was chaired by Dr Kangzangding Thou and a poem from the book was read out at the event by Miss Macingaule Thou.
The author Kebana Thou handles an Instagram Page @kebanathou where she shares her writings. The book is available at all the local book stores in Dimapur and Kohima. Also, available online in http://www.ilandlo.com
