Seshendra : Visionary Poet of the Millennium

Postby saatyaki » Thu Jul 24, 2014 4:18 am

Rivers and poets
Are veins and arteries
Of a country.
Rivers flow like poems
For animals, for birds
And for human beings-
The dreams that rivers dream
Bear fruit in the fields
The dreams that poets dream
Bear fruit in the people-
-Seshendra Sharma

Seshendra Sharma better known as Seshendra is a colossus of Modern Indian poetry.
His literature is a unique blend of the best of poetry and poetics.

Diversity and depth of his literary interests and his works
are perhaps hitherto unknown in Indian literature.

From poetry to poetics, from Mantra Sastra to Marxist politics
his writings bear an unnerving print of his rare Genius.
His scholarship and command over Sankrit, English and Telugu Languages has facilitated
his emergence as a towering personality of comparative literature in the 20th Century World literature.
T.S.Eliot, Archibald MacLeish and Seshendra Sharma are trinity of world poetry and Poetics.

His sense of dedication to the genre he chooses to express himself and
the determination to reach the depths of subject he undertakes to explore
place him in the galaxy of world poets / world intellectuals.
