Nur Sarah Kader’s poetry book receive positive reviews

There is a scarcity of poems written from a Bangladeshi perspective in a foreign language. Nur Sarah Kader raised in the United States of America is among those trying to fill the gap. Her upbringings and closeness to her family have kept her close to her Bangladeshi culture. Her ethnicity, religion, and culture are an integral part of who she is. She recently launched a poetry book titled- Chromatic: The Stages of Life bringing together a number of short English poetical pieces in each page of the 72-pages of the book brought out by Behulabangla.
The poems in the book take the reader along a journey through various stages of growth from early childhood to adolescence. They take inspiration from simple views to complex themes such as political unrest and negative views towards migration in western hemisphere as well as the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh. She also relates the challenges of integration in a different culture from the point of view of her grandmother who faces struggles with language and norm in a different culture. Her expression of very common things in Bangladeshi culture are so vivid that it would make the readers wonder how universal our culture and beliefs are and how they can assimilate seamlessly with any and all culture.
Nur started writing from age 8 and standing now on 16. The book received many social media reviews and over 35000 active engagements in Facebook. The book is available locally online in rokomari.com and in the US in amazon.com.
