loss of belief is linked to ageing; “I insist there were many rose trees/Each stood for a lost year” And in an especially lovely and significant passage: “I hear a kind of singing/Death is so close/ I am almost become Him/ I have clung to a hundred and one things/ as to twigs as to straws/ Despite this will He bring me/ Belief the one word I lack/ or a hundred and one more” The allusions images and places bring to mind parallels between the chaos violence and destruction that followed the building of the Tower of Babel current violence in the Middle East and the suicidal attack on Mumbai; the ruins mentioned could belong to the past the biblical or the present: “A severed hand/ a bleeding foota metal device — what assassins discard/entering Paradise” The fall from paradise and the building of the Tower of Babel is also the start of racism and religious hatred whether Muslim/Hindu or Aryan/Jew A short review is no place to explicate a complex poem in which the themes need space to demonstrate how and why they are linked but it should be obvious without further quotations that this is a powerful intense important poem sometimes sardonic at times ironic in places confessional and a major work of literature that demands attention while being a pleasure to read especially aloud for its music The puzzling symbolism can usually be understood in context; if not Google is useful It is lyrical yet evocative of the public and mythic as well as the personal After Gulestan Jussawalla should no longer be neglected He is back better than ever Bruce King lives in Paris and is the author of among other works Modern Indian Poetry in English For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | Chennai | Published: July 12 2016 7:24 pm Foxconn India has set up a new manufacturing unit at Sri City Special Economic Zone located at Tada which assembles smartphones for Chinese firm Xiaomi?who directs him in his next film, She adds Benafsha’s name to it as well. 9:31 pm:?
