Aditi Singh is a psychologist by qualification who chose to follow her dreams by pursuing her career as a freelance commercial and advertising photographer specialising as a Tabletop & Product Photographer. She’s also a self-taught Zentangle/Mandala artist with a predilection and an appreciation for almost every art form.
Aditi has always been an avid reader and kept writing snippets and one liners to compliment her photography and other art works. It’s just few months back that she made her debut as a poet by contributing her poems, that she started writing during the COVID times in 2020, in two anthologies ‘The Walk of Life’ and ‘The Whistling Words’. ‘Love was a lie’ is her first poetry book that talks about the struggles of a girl who lived through a painful psychologically abusive relationship. It’s a tale of a mending and healing yet bleeding heart elucidated in seventy three poems. Close conversance with a typical narcissist-empath relationship is what impelled her to write these poems. Psychological abuse, she believes, is something that usually goes unnoticed. People prefer staying silent and the abuser finds it so easy to walk away with all the lies he/she said and all the damages he/she created. Through this book she’s trying to make a humble appeal to all #stopnormalisingabuse.
