About the Book: The Sun Does Not Set... And Other Works: Stories and Poems From Mauritius
Shakuntala Hawoldars writings are poignant renderings of human struggles and sufferings in a world dominated by power, ignorance, inequality, misfortunes and psychological frailties. Her rich vocabulary and her choice of syntax mesmerize the reader into a no-mind land where self-inquiry takes over your imagination. The light of hope for a better world and a better life is kindled if you allow yourself to be carried away by her writings and Being which is poured willingly on to every page.
In my opinion Shakuntala Hawoldar is a poet and a great poet. Imbued with a sincerity that rises like a fountain of water and falling into flames. The heart expands. It becomes light and fire. The womans heart is revealed, totally naked, in her poems. But a heart that wants to transfigure. Hers is the search for the Absolute.
Malcolm de Chazal, acclaimed Mauritian writer and poet, in Advance newspaper Work of a rare genius: rare because non-alcoholic and sober, un-subjected to the tragic trickery of life and cheerful... A fascinating and intriguing balance of the Male and the Female. The latter enables clarity of vision and easy and pellucid flow of mysticism.
Swami Venkatesenanda, disciple of Swami Sivananda and founder of the Divine Life Society, Mauritius
