Hi mam! This vibrant collection of poetry is straightforward. The language is simple and some poems are so deep that readers could personally connect to it. Your choice of words was so good.

Hellooo ma'am... Just now read your "I named the Village". It is just worth reading. The words and the languages used in it were very easy to understand. I mostly prefer short stories than poems. But after reading your poetry collection I felt good, that poems can also be written in simple words. Especially, I loved " Moms never quit ,wait of the man and night of a widow". Just loved all these... Thank you ma'am.

Hello Mam, I just now took a thorough glance of "I named the village". I am still amused by the use of simple yet magnificient terms in each and every poem. My personal favorite is "Wait of a Woman" in which you have brilliantly brought out the sufferings of a young woman, who is staying far away from her husband. That particular poem was very elegant and spellbound. Wishing you a wonderful writing journey ahead. Thank you!


Thank you for getting back to me. Your appreciable words are encouraging one. Thanks again..

Some poems are close to my heart and relates to my own life. I personally like the poem "Moms never quit" it is relevant to my mom especially. Thank u for these beautiful and unique poems with elegant verbal expressions.


Yes, true.. "Moms never quit" is a good one and Moms wont quit also. Thank you for the valuable comment.

Hi ma'am, I read your book 'I named the village', your writing style is simple and realistic. I like the way you present the serious issues compared with nature. I really like the poem 'Sage' because of its great message -'Do not interfere in the business of others'. I wish you have a successful journey in this field.


Thank you for the wish and comments.

From the start, till the end, it was so good and interesting ma'am. It stands as an eye-opening for who always depends on male chauvinistic perspectives. Especially, the poems like "Boots and Naked" and Wait of a Woman is tremendous ma'am. Personally, I love the poem "Me" and "Pink".


Good to point the society the necessary needs. Portraying women's issues and emotions through the poems is also one among them. Thank you for the valuable words of you.

Dear Mam
I recently read your collection of poetry, titled 'I Named The Village'. I would like to say I was pleasantly surprised to find the mention of Sidney Sheldon in the preface, as I am currently reading his novel 'The Naked Face'.
The poem titled 'PINK' took quite a turn for me, for in my eyes, I've always had a positive inclination towards the visually pleasing color.
Dew was also an excellent poem to read for a romantic like me. My other favorites include 'Colours' and 'You Being', both for their inexplicable softness.
Overall, it felt like I was taking a walk along the pavement yet on a rollercoaster at the same time. Thank you for the unique experience.


I am being a vivid reader of Sidney Shelton and read several times the book, 'The Naked Face'. Sailing on the same boat. Thank you for the reading and commenting back. Thanks again.

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..
~ Ahila

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.
