One of the renowned consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Dr. Jyoti Kapoor, is all set to take you on another soul-touching journey with her second book, Itineris II- The Journey Within. It is the sequel to her first anthology of the undulating course of love and its many expressions, Itineris- The Journey Through Mirages.
The sequel depicts how the human mind processes situations and feelings through various perspectives. Sometimes it is in a state of restlessness and hence perception is coloured with unrest and dissatisfaction. At other times, it is calmer and more accepting and can follow a more neutral approach. The book unravels how the mind evolves over a period of experiences and not just with time. It is divided in five parts based on the various aspects of the psyche experiencing and interpreting the world of emotions.
“Itineris II shows a dreamer who fantasizes an ideal world getting distraught as expectations are not meeting in real world. Also, it shows a seeker who starts to search for means of fulfilment of those fantasies, a wanderer who gets lost during the search and starts doubting the world while questioning existence, an observer who starts the process of neutral observation about how generally people perceive and react, and shows a believer who is able to accept its own capacity to find within what it sought in outer world,” says Dr. Jyoti.
The poetry style is the flavour of metaphors and analogies to depict an emotional state that can’t be defined by the rules of language alone. It shows how the outer world is mostly a reflection of inner interpretations, therefore, ‘the you is me’ and therefore what readers perceive is as much about the own-self as about the writer’s muse.
