Interviewer: Congratulations on the release of your book Emotions Galore, Kanika Ji! Tell us something about your book?
Kanika Muniyar: Thank you so much for the honour. Recently released my poetry book “Emotions Galore” is the collection of poetries that will take you to the journey of different variations of imagination and magic in words, connecting you to various corners of love, fate, mystery , dreams and all emotions dusted in the rich captivating lines with hidden meanings and epic rhymes. Poetries will take you to the seasons of emotions scribbled, sitting between the greenery, sleeping in the nature bed and near the window seat where winds touch and poetries beat. A great grab for teenagers to feel the flavourful impressions of relationships portrayed with the poetic pen.
