9780980910872: Kolkata Dreams

Kolkata Dreams is a work of travel poetry that will transport you across the sea to northeastern India. The poems explore the idealization of Mother India against the realities of its westernization from the perspective of a Canadian-born Indo-North American discovering his heritage for the first time. When reading and reciting this poetry (you may be forced to voice these poems aloud), you will find that laughter often chokes itself on tears while the book yo-yos between meditation and contemplation. The experimental use of a first-person/third-person singular-detached narrator encapsulates the feeling of disembodiment often felt by the voyager, especially in this case, as the poet simultaneously belongs to yet remains apart from the cultures he explores. In short, Kolkata Dreams is a must-read for anyone interested in the balance between tradition and modernity, particularly in the context of globalization and twenty-first century India.

About the Author :

K. Gandhar Chakravarty is a poet, scholar, and musician. His poems have been published internationally and some have been translated into Bengali, the mother tongue of his most immediate ancestors. Kolkata Dreams (2009) represents his first full-length work of poetry, a collection of travel writing developed in 2001. Maple Vedas (2010) his most recent collection has won critical acclaim.

Review :

A robust, deceptive simplicity hums at the center of this collection. Jaunty, and at times, truly witty, a single turn of phrase unearths a basic truth. Each poem does a job in Kolkata Dreams.
- Yusef Komunyakaa, Pulitzer Prize Winner for Poetry

...an extraordinary excursion into the secret alleys of dreamy reminiscence. It transports you to your very own cozy nook - soothing yet strangely disconcerting, magical yet charmingly blatant... ...intoxicating.
- Buddhadeb Dasgupta, Poet and Internationally Acclaimed Filmmaker

This is a book of exotic smells, sounds, and sights. Chakravarty's poems come alive in the reading and their languid syllables roll off the tongue. Like the land he is describing, Chakravarty's poems invite you in as an interested traveller and then change you as you live them.
- Matthew Anderson, CBC / QWF Literary Award Winner

His collection of poems called Kolkata Dreams contains pieces of simple lyrical quality and depth in meaning.... I enjoyed reading his book immensely. So I hope many other readers will.
- Sunil Gangopadhyay, President, Sahitya Academy and Bestselling Poet & Novelist.

...journeys through the detritus and dreams of dying cities and cultures across the globe....from Kolkata to Kalifornia via Kanada... His verses have a zen-like charm and a sufi throwaway flavour... A book to be recommended.
- Amitava RoyShakespeare Centre for Advanced Research, Editor, Theatre International
