A Home in the Realm of Chaos by Krishti Khandelwal – Poetry Collection Review


“A Home in the Realm of Chaos” by Krishti Khandelwal is a mesmerizing journey through the waves of emotions, beautifully expressed through poetic verse. In this collection, Khandelwal invites readers into her world, offering glimpses of raw vulnerability, profound insight, and unyielding hope. It was indeed surprising for me when I learned that this young poet of just 14 years wrote such powerful poems with so much depth and fineness.

Krishti is emerging as a promising poet of India whom people will love to read. This book is a collection of 32 poems written between the ages of 12 to 14. I got introduced to her poetry for the first time in 2019 when she penned a beautiful poem on the theme of Lockdown and became a winning entry in the anthology book ” Lockdown Kaleidoscope” released by Indiacafe24. 

Each poem in this collection is a testament to Khandelwal’s poetic prowess, showcasing her ability to weave words into intricate tapestries of meaning and emotion. From the depths of despair to the heights of ecstasy, Khandelwal’s verse resonates with authenticity and passion, capturing the myriad shades of human experience.

One of the most remarkable aspects of “A Home in the Realm of Chaos” is Khandelwal’s fearless exploration of the chaos within. Through her poetry, she confronts the turbulent currents of the human psyche, delving into multiple themes with unwavering honesty and depth.

Khandelwal’s language is at once evocative and lyrical, drawing readers into her world with vivid imagery and striking metaphors. Each poem is a journey unto itself, transporting the reader to a world which is both familiar and unknown, where emotions swirl like eddies in a river.

While the collection as a whole is thematically cohesive, each poem stands on its own as a work of art. From poignant reflections on solitude to triumphant odes to resilience, Khandelwal’s poetry speaks to the universal human experience with a voice that is uniquely her own.

In “A Home in the Realm of Chaos,” Krishti Khandelwal has crafted a collection that is both timeless and timely, offering solace and inspiration to readers of all ages.

With its blend of passion, introspection, and wisdom, this is a book that will linger in the hearts and minds of its readers long after the final stanza has been read. For me its an absolute 5/5 book.
