Awakening is the creative expression of a naïve, South African-born Indian who immigrated to the United States. Nishi is a third generation South African who grew up during the apartheid and witnessed the liberation of her country from the grasp of oppression, Awakening is a sampling of the beginnings of a poet. Author Nishi B. Jumna is opening up to creative expression while she explores the impact her Indian heritage has on her life in South Africa and, now, in the United States.
Awakening dips its toes into different aspects of Nishi’s colorful life. The reader journeys from innocence to experience; from science to the embrace of the divine; from rights enforced to those oppressed. Explore your boundaries as you journey through the realms of Awakening. May you find a part of your beautiful self that has been hiding from you. Blessings on your path.

This is a very nice book of poetry and short prose that speaks to the authors experiences in her life. I am not yet through the whole volume but the emotionality and evocative words weave a compelling web that paints the pictures she is telling and draws the reader in and infuses the experience. A good read! Reminds me some of the wonderful May Sarton in its ability to draw a reader in gently through words.
