This collection showcases the new and landmark poems of one of India's most prolific litterateurs. K. Satchidanandan's oeuvre is marked by a keen awareness of his roots and an endearing intimacy with nature, for he grew up talking to cats and crows and trees, gods and spirits; the wind, rain and soil are his limbs, voice and soul. And yet, from this sensibility arise too poems which are global in their concerns and hide in their wake the many-layered realities of the ever-changing world around us. About the Author Satchidanandan is an ace observer of human race, its traits and traditions, culture and history. His pen moves from the impressionistic to the surrealistic, from the revolutionary to the existential with admirable ease. Translated from Malayalam by the poet himself, While I Write is something to cherish for all poetry lovers. It is also HarperCollins's tribute to the legend that Satchi - as the world fondly calls him - already is.
