Nishi Chawla

 

 

 

These fifty poems are a sequel to nishi chawla's collection of poetry on "Indian Women, Indian Goddesses" (2007). nishi chawla offers here a poetic outlook on questions and issues arising from the lives and experiences of Indian men and Indian Gods. The mythological and historical tropes are captured in verse that aims to ponder on, to philosophize and problematize their parallels and connections, if any. Once again, the poet invests her poetic pen in the ink of social color, to paint in the palette of a social canvas that is large and narrow at the same time.


“The book, Indian Men, Indian Gods, is Nishi Chawla’s exploration of masculinities depicted in traditional tales and folk narratives. Gifted with an acute eye for ironic observation, Nishi draws out the parallels in contemporary society and suggests that myths are perennially reinvented to suit their times.”
