Bijay Kant Dubey Poems
Keki N.Daruwalla’s Crossing Of Rivers And The Keeper Of The Dead
Is a joint volume which has appeared from Oxford Univ. Press in 1991,
Accelerating the study of Daruwalla and his poetry,
The first starts with Boat-ride along the Ganga
Followed by Nightscape, Dawn, Bell-tower,
Beads, Crossing of Rivers, Death of a Bird,
The Fighting Eagles
While the latter inclusive of the poems,
As such Hawk, The Mistress, You, Slipping Past,
The Night of the Jackals, Love among the Pines,
From the Snows in Ranikhet, The Unrest of Desire,
The Parsi Hell, To My Daughter Rookzain, Aag-Matam.
Daruwalla as a poet seems to be a reader...
Hughes, you do not look like what you are in your poetry
A man so cruel, so callous
In your behaviour
That you could not take care of
A neurotic girl,
A loving and confessional girl
That you made her take life.
Hughes, are you really a hawk,
