I never thought I’d say this .. But can someone get hold of a copy of the Andhra Pradesh Intermediate First Year English textbook for me? Please?
I’ve been told a few times that a certain poem of mine has been included in the poetry section. I thought it was someone pulling my leg, till someone else got back to me with the same bit of news. I suppose a part of me is delighted, but the other part finds it incredible that someone can just rip out a poem from somewhere, include it in a textbook and there’s no talk of permissions.
One very young reader of this blog has even mailed in the questions for the poem, some of whose lines need to be annotated.
PS – The poem in question.
