b00vrbs1The Poet’s Indian, The Words are English

“Award-winning poet Daljit Nagra explores the place of English in Indian poetry, asking whether it’s simply another Indian language to be absorbed by poets, or whether its colonial roots are an issue. . .

Indian poetry in English has flourished over the past decades and is now an energetic and global scene. With poets Imtiaz Dharker, Keki Daruwalla, Meena Alexander, Jeet Thayil and Amit Chaudhuri Daljit rekindles the debate and explores this rich story.”
