The Necessity of Geography is an anthology of sixteen poems that fringe on the surreal expectations and outcomes of reality. It is the pining, the having, the loving, the breaking and the healing. The poems look at the world in blacks and whites. Each painful exploration is followed by the optimistic discovery of a territory that offers hope. The intensity of the emotions: the pain and the melancholy, the joy and the ecstasy, the wounds and the healing is different on various levels, but the thought processes behind all the poems are exactly the same. The Necessity of Geography is so titled as it mulls over the importance of geography, contours and boundaries to finally realise how abstract these terms are in a world connected by love, optimism, and hope.
