My poems are Dravidian in tradition and draw largely on landscapes,
philosophy, religion, and customs of South India. I believe that poetry
should emulate music, or aspire towards the condition of music, and I thus
like my poems to resound with the lyric voice of dream and imagination,
such as is evoked in the blissful melodies of Franz Schubert. I love using
rich, vibrant imagery, that is not always rooted in the 'real' world but in
a transitional zone between the real and the wholly imaginary, a fantastic
reality that is at the same time accessible and not accessible. And I deal
with everyday human emotions such as longing, nostalgia, regret, sorrow,
and happiness, nothing too otherwordly.
I teach English Literature at the National University of Malaysia. My
strength lies in the field of post-colonial literatures written in English
and music & literature.
