REVIEW : Philia and Sophia by Nikitha Hingad

Just like the title suggests Philia and Sophia is a compilation of poems and writings on love and wisdom. the compilation consists of of well-crafted poems written in diamat, haiku, sonnet and free style of poetry. Philia is a set of heart touching poems with ubiquitous themes like proposal, betrayal and memories. Sophia on the other hand leaves reader with a message, a moral and inspiration for better living. Sophia makes reader really think and Philia makes reader feel. Philia and Sophia intend to touch the heart, soul and stir deep thoughts.

REVIEW  : -  
Firstly i would like to thanks to the author to send me the book for review.
Honestly speaking this the best poetry book i ever read, come across 

i havnt studied literature/poetry  course, so  won't go into much detail, but i usually read poetry on fb or websites
Talking about the book :- it is a 
compilation of poems
The book is divided into two parts: Philia and Sophia.
Philia and Sophia, derived from Greek words, ‘Philia’ literal meaning love and ‘Sophia’ meaning
wisdom. Although Philiais often seen as friendship or fondness, but here I have described Philia as romantic love. Philia-Sophia when roughly translated in English shall mean love for wisdom

i.e. Philosophy.
The book is not just philosophy but also acollection of poems, writings on love, philosophy and such.
There are few romantic poems.beautiful lines which will blow your mind & connect to the heart core,there are emotions, feelings, love, hatred, everything packed up in this book .

Some lines from the poem -
1) The power of love makes you so strong.
But be careful whom you give in
’Cause love sees no right, no wrong.

Don’t let the evil win.
2) If Love was the ocean, I’d turn into a fish.
If love was the wind, I’d turn into a bird.
If love was the fire, I’d burn into ash.

If love was the poetry, I’d become every word.

The best thing i like about this is that it contain sketches, beautiful drawn,potraited in mostly all the poems .
ALL TOGETHER, its breathtaking ,heartwarming,pleasing .
