Thoughts in Solitude
About the book
Thread the needle, Weave the beads. Black, white, wheatish (human colors) All in one. The peace on the planet Will be done. All hatred from the earth will be shun. Tranquility and calm will prevail, When the shoulders will be made Free from the gun. Racism and casteism will be none. Grief, sorrow, and doubts Will be on the run. Thread the needle, Weave the beads, Shun the gun, And be one.

I've read a lot of books, so it's fortunate that I learned about this one through an old friend in Bangalore, whose innocent daughter urged me to read it. I fall in love with it right away. There is a lot originality with it book cause it paints a picture for one. Thank you.

About this book is something special. I have liked it more then many poetries that i have come across, as i have observed that in poetry writers in general nowadays just write about love and thus it have less scope of philosophy and life in general so that why I wrote this review here to let people know that this book has wide range of topics that are discussed and beautifully explained. Enjoyed reading it.

I am going to write a very different review here. When i read this book "Thoughts in solitude" i came across few poems that made me emotional like "A bride with a rose petal, Marina, Thus spake Asifa from her grave, the sweet little fairy Asifa, Iqra- a girl so slim and shy" These are so emotional. As a mother of 2 beautiful daughters. It touched my heart. God bless you shameema khan. Beautiful book.

In Delhi, a very good friend Faheem, gave me a copy of this book and asked me to write a review and be really honest about it. After working in the corporate world for so long, it's strange for me to read poetry because it's not my genre and I don't get many book offers. Now, as I was returning to Bombay. I read this book on the aircraft, and I started reading it quickly because that's how I imagine poetry should be read. You go quickly and then come to a halt when you come across a fascinating line. I started reading this book the same way and i was in my halt from third page. This book is straightforward, sensitive, and profound. It gets 5 stars from me here. Good luck to you Shameem Khan. Thanks for sharing your poetry with the world.

To my surprise, I went to meet my colleague and her daughter had this book on her Kindle and she was talking to her mother about it. She offered me to read some pages and while reading, i felt the words, and i bought the book there. After reading it I was deeply fascinated with some of the poems. It has been a long time since i had read anything other than banking books, but now I regretted why i had stopped. I wish the author all the happiness and success for writing such a deeply poetry piece, looking forwarding reading her next book.

This book has some powerful poems. I like some on society. This is pretty interesting read I would say. Simple and elegant. Some poems are with so much of innocence. I also happened to observe that Shameem Khan’s writing style is unique in every different poem. God bless her.
Nighat Rehman Verified Buyer
I am writing this review because Shameem Khan happened to be my teacher. When i saw this book and read it, i could totally relate with it because of her behavior and how innocent and honest of a person she was to us back those days. These poems are beautiful. When sometimes soon i come to Kashmir, i wish to see her. My all the wishes to her. Thank you.

Neelofer Khan Verified Buyer
Dear Shameem, Going through the poems i couldn't help but wonder if the writer is really my sister- the one who is so simple & shy. To realise she has such ideas, such creativity, and such a talent for expression, has truly been a revelation. Each poem is powerful, and ripe with emotion. The way you have penned them down with such grace & colours, a person is transported deep into thought, to live the scenes you have created with your articulation. Some images that have left a lasting impression on me are The Mother with her unadulterated love for the child The Beggar which makes us realise that as humans we are always dependent in one form or another. Such a touchy subject which makes us empathize, rather than restrict our feelings for them to sympathy. Mud House makes me confront my inhibitions and discomfort, and encourages me to resist them with hope and prayer. The fable of the Cat and Crow which emphasizes the beauty of innocence. Kudos my sister, your work deserves lots of applause. And the gesture of dedicating this piece of literature to our beautiful & loving mother has impressed me. I am honoured to have the booklet and to go through its pages. Please convey my regards to the publisher for such lovely & impressive work. Keep it up sister... Your sibling Neelofer.
