Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsUpdated: November 25 2017 2:20 am Available Light: New and Collected Poems Top News BY SMITA AGARWAL Available Light: New and Collected Poems CP Surendran Speaking Tiger Publishing Private Limited 272 pages Rs 499 The poems of Available Light may safely be placed within the tradition of confessional poetry from India arguably initiated in the Rig Veda by Yami explicitly expressing desire for her brother Yama The Bhakti poets from all over India continued this tradition in the regional languages with Meera Bai saying for instance: Merey mann mey aisi aavey Marun jeher bis khaayi key Oji Hari Kith gaye neha lagaay key … Ultimately the confessional voice showed up in the brief but startling history of Indian poetry in English via Derozio Dhan Gopal Mukerji Sarojini Naidu and star performers like Kamala Das and Dom Moraes who also happened to be Surendran’s mentor By and large conflicted memories related to childhood especially the father and failed love form the sediment upon which the edifice of the collected poems is erected For this anguished vulnerable self negotiating the world is a continual challenge And articulating this process of negotiation is an even greater one for it is not at all necessary that the reader affirms a similar bleak and despondent view of life In Surendran’s seamless melding of the conscious and the subconscious his poems may systematically create angst in the minds of staid middle class women in their dotage like me straitjacketed in a predictable safe boring life clueless of Mirtaz Daxid Zapiz or of sleeping in the nude living alone and drinking all by themselves in the dark Bizarre forever receding and appearing in flashes till both the poet and the reader don’t know where reality ends and fantasy begins in this world of sudden bursts of luminosity forever threatened by an abiding overwhelming darkness the poems continually battle with nascence and a deep anguish stark and inescapable makes its presence felt Cupping his hands to contain this Available Light the poet struggles to put before us this shadowy world peopled by the ghostly revenants of memory Memory is Muse but it is also the repository of disquiet and confusion So the poems articulate pain pain and more pain… Hence surrealistic imagery and very very rarely flashes of a black ironic humour are the devices available to the poet to illuminate his crepuscular inner world Consider “Catch 22”: There were times when he didn’t know What to do with his love Especially since she seemed Quite all right without it Also the new poems of Available Light are an artist’s response to Narendra Modi’s MODIFIED India of today an India reverberating with the Munch-like silent screams of Perumal Murugans Mohammed Akhlaqs and Gauri Lankeshs To animate this scenario Surendran uses surrealistic techniques to bridge the abyss between reality and imagination and to articulate the utter confusion and anxieties created by the conscious and unconscious mind as in the poem ‘Hadal’ The waves white with what they witnessed Below return bowing and scraping Along the shadows they throw On shore; back Back to the silence thick as massed glass To first fish time cutting teeth in the dark; Ossified bones hermaphrodite flesh marine snow The cold is without thought Things alive Barely breathe Your body sieves the sun To the last Here you are: in your element Feeding the sea out of your hand; The memory-pumping heart is salt The sands rise from your pores There the shadows start And it is because of this that the scope of the collection moves beyond Bombay Bangalore and India to voice the aloneness and edginess of any person living anywhere in the contemporary world of Uber and tweets All in all a volume of collected poems is an interesting read as it charts a course in a map: where the poet set out from where he has arrived and what happened on the way There is an unwritten contract with the reader that she may expect changes in course some high drama where one got lost how one found the way back… Not much of that happens in Available Light Although several individual poems crafted with finesse are memorable the themes and devices used to start the journey in Gemini II continue to be the same making Available Light a tad tedious because of the repetition of the overarching concerns The presence of women is also dull and stereotypical: self-sacrificing loved and hated mother and intensely desired feared and despised because unattainable lover/wife/bitch There is a whole bunch of poems across volumes that talk of desire and love but not one poem to express the ecstasy of sexual or emotional fulfillment So in a span of many years not a single positive point of contact with the female of the species However the reader can discern a gradual evolution from the largely straightforward confessional voice of Gemini II to that of the more complex voice of Available Light now fully aware of the presence of the two birds of the Vedas and the Upanishads and of the sense of there being both a performative and a witnessing presence that dominates the landscape of the poems Smita Agarwal is a poet and teaches at Allahabad University For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUpdated: February 19 2014 9:32 am Related News Where is the political judicial leadership to stand up to attempts to silence the writer It is hard to believe that one could feel sickened by the simple act of taking a book off a shelf But when it means that this book is going to be shredded and pulped the consequences make my stomach turn If self-appointed custodians of faith and culture can use outdated laws to intimidate publishers and silence a writer it is time for us to ask whether India as a modern democracy has the kind of political and judicial leadership that can make these irrational attacks a thing of the past Surely there are much more important issues in our country than protecting the feelings and sensitivities of fringe groups who are afraid of honest scholarship and discourse Dina Nath Batra convener of the Shiksha Bachao Andolan Samiti has successfully forced Penguin Books India to withdraw and destroy Wendy Doniger’s The Hindus: An Alternative History He claims that her book is “written with a Christian Missionary Zeal and hidden agenda to denigrate Hindus and show their religion in poor light” Though I have never had the pleasure of meeting Doniger I know for sure that she is not a Christian missionary And nobody dedicates her career to interpreting classical works as she has done with the intention of ridiculing the very traditions she reaffirms and celebrates As a translator of Sanskrit texts from the Rig Veda to the Kamasutra Doniger has done an enormous service to Indian literature and philosophy by making these texts accessible to contemporary readers of English many of whom live right here in India today Most troubling of all is the fact that isolated passages in a book can be twisted into controversial claims that are usually exaggerated almost always inaccurate and invariably motivated by ignorance rather than any genuine concern for cultural integrity India is too great a country to be dragged down by voices of prejudice and defensive alarm Whose sentiments are really being hurt Are we going to stagnate as a culture that continually touches the feet of intolerance Are we going to surrender our ideals of free speech to a limited number of individuals who happen to have the time on their hands to file frivolous yet malicious lawsuits against legitimate authors all in the name of dogmatic purity and pious sanctity Surely our many gods if they are as omnipotent as many of us believe can easily defend themselves against occasional blasphemies and heretical critiques Why do human devotees need to intervene on behalf of immortal deities who can destroy the world in the blink of an eye or create the cosmos in their dreams Much has been made of Doniger’s focus on sexuality in Hindu tradition She is accused of perverse and prurient interpretations of ancient stories art rituals and beliefs Yet I remember reading her masterful translation and commentary on the Kamasutra co-translated with Sudhir Kakar and thinking that this was one of the first renditions that elevated it above the level of archaic porn and exotic smut Dozens of other crass rip-offs of Vatsayana’s classic mostly available in airport bookstores reduce it to a level of vulgarity that might titillate a curious adolescent but hardly shocks anyone above the age of 16 So let’s get over our inhibitions please particularly when it comes to erotic mythology Coital metaphors whether they motivate demons kings or Bhakti saints lie at the heart of our human yearnings In an age when books are already threatened by new technologies that promise to digitise our words and disperse them throughout cyber space it is remarkable that so much anxiety and anger is expended over ink on a page? said of her husband,the biggest factor in deciding the kind of films I do is
