Magnoliye De Phul

Magnoliye De Phul by Satwant Pandher

Magnoliye De Phul, a book of poems by Satwant Pandher, was released at the Garden Park Tower in Abbotsford, November 26, 2011.

About Satwant and Magnoliye De Phul

Satwant was born and raised in Distt ludhiana in Punjab India. She came to Canada in 1975 and settled in Abbotsford with her husband, where their children were born and raised. She worked in healthcare over thirty years. As hobbies, she always enjoyed knitting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, gardening, photography, reading and writing.

Nature gives her the positive and powerful energy which in a way has been therapeutic for her over the years. The purpose of her writings has been to help people find love for Nature. That stemmed from years of working on her farm, spending hours in her garden nurturing her plants, and finally took the form of poetry when she was inspired by the beauty that surrounds her.

Her poems have been published in many Punjabi books, magazines and local newspapers. Some poems in English were published with the Poetry Institute of Canada and also in two anthologies published by. M.S.A Poets Potpourri Society.

Satwant published her first book Magnoliye De Phul in Punjabi, released in November, 2011. The book was inspired by the tree Satwant grew and nurtured for over 25 years with the picture of the magnolia tree on the cover as a symbol of that love for nature.

Book Facts:

  • Title: Magnoliye De Phul – 144 pages, 90 poems, Punjabi poetry
  • Price: $10.00

The book release party was a cause for celebration for Satwant, her family and the Punjabi literary community.
