Hello ma'am, I have read your poetry collection, 'I Named the Village'. Every poem in the collection is as good as the other. I had a great time reading the poems .
Review of I Named the Village by Ahila:
I Named The Village is a collection of poems written by Ahila. Ms. Ahila is a poet, author, fine artist as well as a psychologist. An ardent Tamil writer, she has written nine books including two collections of short stories over a period of fifteen years. Ms. Ahila have been awarded with the Creative Writing Award from Nerunji Literary Movement for her book Nintru Thuditha Ithayam
The collection comprises poems of varying themes ranging from pastoral poetry to poetry drawing attention to the contemporary women’s issues.
Poems such as Where Goes The Shepherd, Pronouced and Rain Ate The Silence are rich in nature imageries that have the ability to appeal all the human senses. Verses such as Boots and Naked and I Named The Village focuses on the issues related to women like women’s liberation, violence and so on. At the same time there are poems that focus on simple human emotions like desire, longing, emptiness and so on seen in the poems like Babbler, Colours, Metal Man and so on.
In short, Ms. Ahila's collection of poems are beautiful and interesting to read.


Greetings !
So nice of you. I place my sincere gratitude for the reading and reviewing by you.
My honest preparation of the poems for this book yields the good, I guess. The silence and the women issues, which are the main core of the book, brought up well in your review.
Thank You again..

Good afternoon mam. I have read your poems. It is a nice collection. Can you please share what made you select 'I named the Village' as the poem??


Thank you for the review.
I guess you are asking about selecting that poem for title.
Women have to face the curse of living from the birth itself. Female infanticide is a problem to be addressed. We are also the human species who have all the rights of living on this earth. Taboos like girl children are burden, girls must be married off soon are to be removed. Urban and rural women face different type of societal issues. On the point of addressing this, I selected this poem for title.
Thank you once again. ?


Thank you so much for your reply mam.
