Ivory Gleam is a reflection of human traits, emotions, sentiments, and reactions, bound delicately together in the elegance of words. It is an excellently composed collection of poems and poetic prose that ponder upon relatable incidents from birth to death.
In today’s era of instant gratification, poetry has taken a different turn altogether. Basic statements and regular exchanges are being labelled as “great poetry”. However, Ivory Gleam is a total game changer. Refreshing. It belongs to the league of experimental poetic brilliance and imbues a traditional approach with modern thinking. The book is a time-honoured rare edition. It engages with your emotions in the most eloquent fashion. Some pages are more dense than the rest. But each composition is substantial and well formed. The poet has retained the beauty of true literature for our consumption. She has a mastery over the language which very few can boast of.
From the Land of the Mystic Sun and Monasteries, Sikkim, Dr.Priya Dolma Tamang has managed to entice the literary world with her honest genius and purity of expression. She is the mind and the heart behind the Instagram blog “poetry and prose byk” which is undoubtedly one of the most popular pages for a poetic escapade.
