Indian Poetry In English - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Poetry? What is poetry? How the emotions of it? How the feelings and how the perception with regard to it? Poetry, poetry as the oral literature handed down from age to age; poetry as mural presentation, why can it be not? Poetry in stones carved upon as figurines and sculptures; poetry as terracotta plates of art and artifact. Poetry as Shiva-lingams; poetry as the lingam-yoni motif. Poetry, poetry of cloned species; poetry, poetry of conservators; poetry eco-friendly and sustainable.

In Indian English poetry, search I the dark daughters of Jayanta Mahapatra, the doongar-varis of the Parsis in Daruwalla, the missing man in Adil Jussawalla, the protagonist of the Canterbury Tales in Kolatkar's Jejuri, the Judith Wright, Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath of the West in Kamala, the changed Shylock of The Merchant of Venice in Nissim, the faded romantic with the fortune-teller's zodiac-card picking green parrot in P.Lal, isn't it?
