‘Embrace’ is a true reflection of its title. The collection of poems address a variety of issues which are relevant to us internally in today’s times. The main themes revolves around love with all its beauty and hurt and self-belief. Areas like women empowerment are explored in the poems “We Owe” and “Paradoxical Perfection”. Through these poems Maddhav has tried to embrace life with all its beauty, bitterness and change. Be it accepting the state of your heart or accepting change in the world around us. Maddhav doesn’t really wish to provide answers to these everyday questions we face but only tries to understand and make the readers understand what it is like going through these emotions, facing these challenges and fighting these battles that each one of us surely does. The first step to resolving a problem is to embrace it. So come let’s embrace together. Come and explore with me, The questions to which the answers will set us free. What is it like to be in blissful love? What is it like for us to kill that dove? What does it mean to be a woman today? Where does it lead us if we stay loyal to our passion and not betray? These are fields on which I have no expertise, But I am sure together we are capable of finding the answers in the breeze. This is my quest that now I place under the scrutiny of your eyes, So gaze carefully with the windows to your soul as we separate the truth from the lies.
