The only truth that matters is That all this love is mine to give It does not matter that I seek For it a container, as alms Seek a begging bowl... ? Kamala Das PRITISH NANDY Tonight I surrender to the closing of wings: the Dark shall testify to this tremulous rhyme: Whenever you move under me, my body celebrates This beautiful ceremony... ? Pritish Nandy This is a collection of love poems by two outstanding poets: Kamala Das and Pritish Nandy. Das is no longer alive but her reputation and following continue to grow.
