Matryoshka is an ensemble of 100 poems, closely knit and woven together with the thread of creativity and cosmos. The narrative is constructed around four sections ‘Pretenses’, ‘Silence’, ‘Romance ‘and ‘Siblings’. Individual poems communicate a discrete story, yet harmonize with all others like a whole. Stacking dolls are associated with family and fertility in the Russian culture and symbolize the unity between mind, body, spirit, heart and soul. According to Indian philosophy all matter is composed of five basic elements — panchamahabhutas — which inhere the properties of earth (prithvi), water (jala), fire (tejas), wind (vayu) and space (akasha). This collection is about the inextricable bond between Man and Nature, wherein the metaphor of nesting dolls Matryoshka in the title represents Prithvi (mother Earth) and the four sections as elements of the cosmic creation. Matryoshka is a unique collection of poems unfolding the journey of life in its kaleidoscopic forms.
