The poems inside this chapbook are based on my experiences traveling and living in India.
Mera Bharat is published by Red Dashboard Press.
From the back cover:
Witness the rawness of Benares, the heat and romance of Rajasthan, the cruel beauty of Goa, the spirituality of Rishikesh, the mysteries that surround Mussoorie, the traditions of Bengali culture in Calcutta and the remote wilderness of the Palani Hills through the poet’s eyes during his 1994 visit to India and subsequent move there 18 years later.
This is a project I have been working on since the mid-1990s, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did working on it!
For a taste, read “Puja” here.
