A journey of rich imagery
The heart of a writer is one that can connect
with the beauty of the world and then recreate it in writing. When
reading Along the Red River the autobiography of veteran Assamese
journalist Sabita Goswami one cannot help, but see how her heart
blends with the beautiful environs she travels through and how her
words capture those moments and narrate to her reader with a
beguiling lyrical touch. I wish to discuss certain instances in the
narrative where poetic imagery gives insight to the aesthetic pulse
in the journalist Goswami and how the metaphoric aspects relate to
the title of the book.
D. H. Lawrence and the art of poetry
The second poem by Lawrence that I wish to
discuss briefly is The Ship of Death. It is one of the last poems
that he wrote before his death. It is long and ambitious and in many
ways incomplete. However, it exemplifies what to me is the mature
poetic art of Lawrence as manifested in the latter phase of his
career. It blends in interesting ways, grandeur and calmness,
artifice and spontaneity.
Manipuri, the most graceful dance among Indian classical dances
The East Indian state dance Manipuri gained
worldwide recognition. Manipuri originated in the East Indian state
of Manipur. The word Manipuri is also often used for Manipuri saris.
The excellent Manipuri saris are also manufactured in the Manipur
state of India.
