We Called the River Red:
Poetry from a Violent Homeland
That’s the title of my poetry collection to be published soon by Author’s Press, Delhi. I have been talking at various forums – most recently at the ICRC-WFS seminar on ‘Women in Conflict Zones: Survivors and Peace Makers’ on 22 September 2009 at IIC, Delhi – on poetry being both personal and political and on the need for more politically conscious literature. This is my contribution in this regard.
