LiFT: Tell us about the theme of the anthology and how did you get to know about it?

Sasikala: Words are like threads that come together to form a meaningful pattern that brings our emotions to the fore in various ways.
Some of these threads tug at our heartstrings with their depth and purity and bind us in a loving embrace of warmth.
While some strings are pulled so hard that they break our souls and leave scars for life.
This anthology of poems and short stories will captivate the reader with the vivid patterns woven with words that will form an everlasting impression; for words they say have the power to hurt or heal, they can make you sing or singe, they can be the elixir of life or succour for the parched soul.
