Indian English Poets Are Not Born-Poets, But Made - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Indian English poets are not poets born
As we can expect for a classic from them,
They are made,
Have become
Emulating, deriving from and copying.

Whoever praise you is but a minor poet turned into a poet or poetess,
Even P.Lal to had been a minor writer of verse
As his companions were,
The small poetrywallahs turn into the big bosses
Of Indian English poetry.

The ordinary fellows turn into the critics of it
Just attempting the things
As a fresher, a new research scholar,
Standard and scholarship is but missing
In Indian English poetry.

How poor and weak will appear it
The older collections of Writers Workshop,
Published by P.Lal,
Just sixteen pages one collection of poems!

Give money and be a poet,
Access and approach,
But it helped too in finding
Our probable poets.

What it worries it most is this that
We are in need of some classical scholars
Into the arena of Indian English poetry and criticism,
Classical treatises and poetry that we need most urgently.
