    Most of the writers belonging to Navya school (modern poetry) and even the noted critics in Kannada have been college teachers, and professors. English literature and world literature in English translation influenced these writers and critics greatly. It started with M.Gopalakrishna Adiga. His poem entitled Bhoomi Geetha (the song of the earth) marked the beginning of the Navya school.

    Fascinating imagery and powerful thoughts- some with reference to Indian religious texts and mythology. Interesting to know that he was a lecturer/professor in the English department of a college in India but wrote in his native Kannada. Jiban-ananda Das, superb Bengali poet, was a lecturer/professor in the English department of a college in India.

This Land Of Ours Now

Put this tree, dead in roots, erect,
Let the branches be as they are;
Collect the fallen leaves with choked feelings,
Boil them, prepare soup, and drink.

Water the tree; while you are sad
Water it with tears; show sympathy
With all your might; inside
Curry the favours of Sani.
