The Longer Ramble
I once tried writing about the cities in my life. Metaphors from different languages and cultures begin to drip off one’s forehead. In Hindi, there is a wonderful idiom that sums up the notion of identity.
Dhobi ka kutta, na ghar ka na ghat ka.
Trans. Like the washerman’s dog – who belongs neither at home nor to the river bank.
In worldly terms I live in London. I am a part-time poet. Amateur (oh! sooo amateur) photographer. Blogging started as a literal way to break out of boredom induced by coffee breaks at work, but it has become one of the many centres of my universe.
