Introduction

For the longest time, I’ve been looking for a collection of love poems with an Indian sensibility, but with no success. This anthology is a witness to my journey; a gift for readers in search of a fresh, representative sample that delves into the range of emotions, writing styles and expressions that make up the world of Indian English love poetry.

It mirrors the multitude of voice occupying the poetic landscape in India. The contributors include stalwarts like K. Satchidanandan, Meena Alexander and Sukrita Paul Kumar as well as promising poets like Aditi Machado, Uddipana Goswami and Tishani Doshi. I have also to showcase writers who have a virtual existence on a blog or online journal and bring them closer to immortality though the printed word.

Poets of different ages and genders who revel in their individual styles of expression populate these pages. They are bound by a common thread: the pursuit of an authentic representation of the idea of love. “This ranges from the sweet nostalgia of childhood and what emotion begins to mean at the age, to unrequited love and carnal physicality.

It resonates with agony and ecstasy, fulfillment and longing, awe and adoration. I hope this give you pleasure as you turn the pages; that it makes you smile or shed a tear, sigh, feel and ponder the meaning of the self and the other.

This collection is more attempts in history to demystify what keeps us going in sleep, twilight and eternal wakefulness. I hope it brings you closer to some answers, as it does me.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
