"I am not a Poet" is a series of thoughts that reflects the social and internal idiosyncrasies which each one of us goes through. It is not a pedantic read or a lover's parody but reflections on the real life from the eyes of the author-an awakened dreamer, who doesn't want to leave her dreamland yet wants to stay close to reality. She depicts the aberrations of the customary life through her art and unfolds the thought that went behind it. She touches upon multi-varied dichotomies in life, that starts with tracing a woman's journey, then dwelling into explaining the internal and external conflicts of an individual's convictions. In the denouement of the narrative, the author expresses her own journey as an artist. It largely supports the notion of self-reflection and acceptance.
A Social Anthropologist by profession but an awakened dreamer in real, who doesn't want to leave her dreamland yet wants to stay close to the reality. Roohani is highly inspired by the tribal regime and is on a voyage to explore the intricate ideologies that run parallel to the tribal society. Her education in the field of Sociology intrigued her into exploring the eclectic philosophies that govern the social systems. The same is well reflected in her art and publications. She is a published author and a fine artist. She wishes her work to be a catalyst to evoke thoughts of social and personal reformation.
