Poet Ratan Bhattacharjee is one of the strong voices in the sphere of Indian English poetry in recent times. His love lyrics aestheticise the progressive exploration of diverse corridors of romantic love in a brilliant Bhattacharjeesque style. Through his poetry, he explores diverse milestones of the mystery of love, human feelings, pain, loneliness etc.. A true 'Romantic singing Bard of Kolkata', Dr. Bhattacharjee is an unlaboured poet.
Sukamaa and other Poems is a wonderful poetry anthology of 50 well crafted poems of Nandini Sahu which I have recently gone through. In this brilliant poetry collection which has been considered as the lyric biography of a Dalit tribal woman, Sukamaa, the poet chronicles the different shades and colors of human life which centers round love, empathy, peace and her loveliness etc.
Of the great names in Indian English Literature in recent times, Nandini Sahu occupies a significant place. Her poetic firmament is illumined with her journey of her self, her love for nature and life. Hers is a strong poetic voice. In a candid interview she talks about her life and her poetry.
