Papers accepted for Fulcrum.

I was stunned, shocked and amazed :-) one late night at 2.30am to discover that I have had two academic papers accepted for the prestigious international journal 'Fulcrum: a journal of poetry and aesthetics' , edited by the poet, Philip Nikolayev.
The two papers are from my MPhil and PhD work, and I have presented these earlier at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and at in the IAWS (Indian Association for Women's Studies) Conference in Guwahati, Assam.

So yes. :-)

1. 'Frontiers: Connecting and Dividing Places in the poetry of Arundhathi Subramaniam, Anjum Hasan, CP Surendran, and Tabish Khair'.

2. Representation of Marginalised Figures in Contemporary Indian Women's Poetry in English

It should supposedly be out by the end of the year.

I may have some more news in waiting... but I'll keep it "in waiting", for the moment, I guess. So long, till then! 

'Irom Sharmila' in Six Seasons Review

My poem 'Irom Sharmila', is a ghazal, written a long time back in 2011, and has been published earlier in Kritya by Rati Saxena. Here it is again, in the 3rd issue of the Six Seasons Review, an international anthology (poetry, fiction etc), mostly based in Bangladesh, but the Indian poet, Sudeep Sen, is also an editor. This came out in June. Forgot to post, sorry! Here it is now, along with the front cover and back cover. I hope the text is readable enough.
