‘Sanskarnama’ gets a shoutout from the great Keki N Daruwalla in his column in ‘The Hindu’, and we couldn’t be prouder.
Daruwalla writes: Sanskarnama by Nabina Das is a strong volume of political poems. It comes after two earlier poetry books. In a poem, ‘Hymn of the Anti-national’, she writes, ‘My lovers are all anti-nationals/ they have eyes of gem-set copper/ tongues of the salted Aravali range,/ every time they serenade me loud/ they send Jai chasing after Ram/ this makes Shri a little jealous/ there’s so much in this din/ because will ache din come only to the favoured/, will an anti-national day/ give us a permanent spring?’

  1. Greetings! We’re planning coverage for Sanskarnama in an upcoming issue of World Literature Today. Would you send a hi-res (300 dpi) image of the cover for use in the issue? Many thanks! Rob
