This debut book of the author is named “Estrenar: Beginning of a New Journey.” Estrenar is a Spanish word that translates into “The First Time.” What a fantastic way to introduce my first book to the world!
The poems are grouped into two segments. The first revolves around life-the various events in everyone’s life, the inner turmoil, the motivation after bouts of depression, and other well-known dilemmas in daily life.
The second mixture is a potpourri of ideas-a woman’s satirical outburst about flatbreads not being round shaped in today’s time or the weight gain difficulties experienced by a middle-aged woman.

Sucharita Parija created her own website: https://streaksofsuchi.com during the pandemic days. She continues with her mission of writing about everyday problems through her poems, quotes, and stories. The themes of her literary works are drawn from her life experiences. She identifies her compositions as falling in the abstract genre.
“Estrenar” by Sucharita Parija is a poetic retelling of a bundle of emotions, The Beautiful delineation of forty-plus proffers not only makes you dip in the ocean of vehemence but also to admire the efforts of the author in penning down her thoughts.
The book is bisected into two unique sections with twenty parts in each. Both the sections equally resonate with the variegated themes and incitements. Every part has a deep-rooted meaning and takes the readers to a fascinating state of mind with profound cognizance.
What is ‘Estrenar’?
“Estrenar“, is a Spanish word which means “Beginning of Something for the first time”, the author’s exemplary expertise is something to look at in every poesy. As I am a big fan of the poetry genre, this book stands out to be an eccentric one in my poetry collections.
This book weaves together a rich tapestry of depressions, life turbulences, and melancholy and explores the complexities of human relationships in everyday life in the first half, while it brings a miscellany of women and their middle-age difficulties in the other part.
Every chapter accompanies an appealing illustration along with the poetic strand. It makes the book reader easily connect and digest the content that Sucharita is trying to express to her book readers along with the closing lines at the end of every unit.
Not as austere poetry, I sincerely appreciate the author’s efforts in providing readers with a deeper understanding of emotions plus the life lessons. I could relate aspects like inner happiness, loneliness, insecurities, mental disturbances, criticism, failures, rejections, etc.
With the beautifully crafted poetry, the author yet again proves age is not a hindrance to “Estrenar”, to begin a new journey. Also, she stands out as an example of shaping up emotionally despite the world that was hit by the pandemic.
