Kabir (The Weaver-Poet)
Kabir (The Weaver-Poet)
Description
About The Book

Mystic weaver, radical reformer, loved and hated equally in his time ... the simple wisdom of his pithy couplets, the famous dohas, makes him one of the most frequently quoted poets even today. Yet Kabir the person remains an enigma.

Threading fact, legend and poetry into a superbly structured narrative around just one day in Kabir's life, the novels is set against the backdrop of fifteenth century Banaras, a period that mirrors quite remarkably our own troubled times. Spare visuals before each section continue Kabir's own favourite metaphore of waving, a delicate tapestry of the city unravelling as the day progresses. Kabir the Weaver-Poet is a landmark in contemporary writing thrilling yet gently emotive, blending high drama with the mesmerising calm of Kabir's beliefs.

 

About The Author

Poet and children's writer Jaya Madhavan began her writing career as a copywriter and a columnist. An alumnus of Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, she uses storytelling, theatre, songs and Carnatic music to create learning modules for children. Kabir the Weaver-Poet has been a labour of love.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
