As a millennial, we often prioritize modernity and materialism over essential elements like love, emotions, poetry, and art, which keep us human. Our emotional vulnerability is what sets us apart from other beings, but we’ve lost touch with it, resulting in a growing divide between individuals and humanity. It’s crucial to reflect on our happiness, inner peace, and emotional state, yet many of us ignore these questions.
“Dear Manusha” written by Anupama Ravindran Menon is a memoir dedicated to love and lost love, demonstrating that lost love is still love and that its memories have the power to heal and inspire us. The book consists of 13 chapters that recount everyday experiences, inviting readers to rediscover forgotten emotions and memories. It’s a heartwarming read that honors the joy of love and serves as a reminder that love is a primal instinct that makes us human.
Interestingly, the book was recently recommended as one of the top three books to read in March 2023 by The Update India and other leading news portals.
