(Cyberwit 2010). Her work has appeared in six countries across three continents. Sweta has held recent artist residencies and workshops in Portugal, Ireland,
and several within USA. She is a graduate of Columbia University.

"In this innovative series, Sweta Srivastava Vikram re-appropriates color. Cultures and mythologies collide along the way, and the result is a chapbook that feels like a quest. In the end, the colors are a map to identity. The child's pink tonsils or the bride's red sari are not symbols, but rather mile markers. Like Vikram's poems, they lead toward understanding"

--Erica Wright, Senior Poetry Editor, Guernica

About the Chapbook

The book delves into the implication and philosophy of colors from a Hindu woman's point of view, from birth until death. The color she adorns herself with almost depicts the story of her life. Expressed through different poetic and verbal forms, each color in the book has its own tone and is specific to different age groups.

Editorial Reviews

VAANI - Smita Singh
Sweta has woven such a spell with her word usage and the symbolisms that the most complex becomes the simplest of all, just as all colors when mixed, end up being just black. The end that Sweta narrates is not gloomy but something mysterious where words fail to convey meaning.
A fantastic read for sure for the lovers of poetry
Reader Views - Irene Watson
I love Sweta Vikram's ability to create a colorful pattern of words that describe many aspects of a Hindu woman's life, both in sorrow and happiness, from birth to death. "Kaleidoscope: An Asian Journey of Colors" is her second chapbook of musings.

Touching the heart of women, Vikram gives us an opportunity to reflect within ourselves to deepen our own understanding of life.
