In Monika Kapoor’s words
“Saundhi is not just a book, it is a fragrance, a feeling that has emanated from the depths of my heart. Just as the fragrance of sweet soil gives pleasure to the heart, these poems do the same to my heart and my life! A poet or a poetess has an emotional connection with the poems, my poems are also my friends who save me every time I stumble.”
Monika Kapoor says that her two children and her husband give her the inspiration to write. From them, she gets the encouragement to write out her thoughts in a beautiful and poetic way.

She considers her family and her children as her inspiration. Monika says that words, poems, and expressions are her true friends. Sometimes she searches for words in herself, sometimes words find her and turn them into poetry! Writing gives her a chance to engrave the thoughts of the mind on paper. Now, it has become an integral part of her life and a beautiful reason to be alive.
