A Guest Writer – Rati Saxena

So this Tuesday gone – the 19th March – I wandered up to the Carmarthen campus to listen to Rati Saxena ( http://www.boloji.com/writers/ratisaxena.htm) . I wasn’t sure how this would work as she is a Hindi poet. But I also found out that she is also a translator, scholar and runs kritya (www.kritya.in).

She has written four collections of poetry and it is these she read from. I don’t understand Hindi but as she varied her voice and tone I was able to feel joy, sadness, fear and anger. There were translations that were read as well but I looked forward to the Hindi readings. She is a true performance poet.
