About the Book 

nishi chawla's long poem, THE GANGA, is divided into several sections, each of which serves to address the various roles and functions of the Ganga, its mythologies and its histories. As a poet, she has tried to establish a developing relationship with the feminine form of the river. She has done extensive research on the river, and indeed, found it a challenge to tease out a long poem from her readings on the sacred river. The last section of the poem is published in the December 2010 edition of the prestigious literary journal published by Sahitya Academy, INDIAN LITERATURE.

nishi chawla's poetic methodology seeks to establish new truths even as it gives us deeper and additional insights into our own hidden nature. The poetic nature of her skepticism tries to take us as efficaciously toward the truth that sets us free as far as our human spirit goes. The poem grapples with its themes rather than comments on them; it aims to act rather than react even as it reflects on the nature of sacrality of the Ganga, the most sacred river in India.
