Journeys are…

Journeys are…

 Fragmented pieces of life

They resonate with happiness

And yet, at times

Entombed with the shards of sorrow,

Wrapped in sepulchral lassitude

And they throb and ache.

Journeys are…

Scattered miles to destinations

Tracking a path through time,

They are pursuits.

And yet, at times

Wearied by the onus of existence

They are but sighs

Escaping, like the last breath.

Sonal believes that life is a repertoire of anecdotes strung together in a colourful array, like a beaded necklace. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, make life a melange of tales and conversational tidbits. And, that is what she attempts to capture through her writing.
She is passionate about writing and is a contributor to several online literary forums and platforms. Her poems and stories have been published in several anthologies.
Sonal is the recipient of Asian Literary Society’s Gitesh Biva memorial award for 2019 and the Prasanna Jena memorial award for 2019, for literary excellence. She is also the recipient of the Orange Flower Award for Parent Blogging for 2020 and emerged as a finalist for the Orange Flower Award for her writing in the arena of LGBTQ+ awareness, also in 2020. In Feb. 2020 she was awarded a certificate of literary excellence by the Asian Literary Society.

When not writing, she manages her HR consultancy business out of Mumbai.
