Reviews

‘The book, superbly translated from Hindi by Anurag Basnet, is both a confirmation of the stories we sometimes come across in national dailies and a plea to ‘mainland’ India to take cognizance of its forgotten citizens.’ Book review of ‘Is That Even a Country, Sir!’ by Anil Yadav, translated by Anurag Basnet.

‘As in all good poetry, the images as they roll down the lines have a logic and a nexus of their own. The poetry is under control and no poem is allowed to run away as it wills, like a vigilante mob.’ Book review of Available Ligh: New and Selected Poems by C P Surendran.

‘The characters in ‘Tully Country’ may date from another time, but there is a timelessness about their lives that serves to bestir the conscience of a country that believes, too early, that it has arrived.’ Book review of Upcountry Tales by Mark Tully.
