Sweta Vikram on “Write Speak Play”

Nanci Arvizu writes:
I had the honor of reviewing “Kaleidoscope, An Asian Journey of Colors,” by Sweta Vikram in 2011 on Page Readers, my podcast way back when. I was thrilled when she reached out to share her latest work, Piece of Peace, an autobiographical account of one woman’s unique struggle with a near-fatal disease in a collection of essays. We jumped into the conversation about the importance of our stories, the healing power of writing and poetry, and her work with sexual abuse and assault survivors, and the importance of the words we chose to support, uplift, and create the connections we all need no matter our journey. Sweta covers a couple of topics, but what we circle back to is how important it is that we are true to ourselves and to our stories.

About this Chapbook...


We have all lost a dear one at some point in our
lives. Grief, depending on the relationship with the
one deceased, affects us differently. I feel my Dada
and Mausi's absence every single day for disparate
reasons. But these two losses have taught me that
their time had come. And that life is about celebrating
those alive and not just mourning those who
have moved on. Optimism and faith are the keys to
overcoming the roadblocks life puts in our way.


This book tries to state that there is always hope for
anyone coping with grief. No one can tell us exactly
how; the voyage has to be undertaken by each of us
individually.
