Ambashankar Nagar (Author) Jaikishandas Sadani (Translator)

The transformation of poetry into authority is the poetic essence and such an authority doesn’t have a specific land or time. A human can convert himself into an authority only by transforming himself from noun to pronoun. Myths are nothing but long collective journeys from noun to pronoun-from specific to general, from self to collective selves. These are leaps into time; leaps which may appear incredible to an ordinary eye. Kandu-Pramlocha love-story may be traced all over the world with slight alterations. There shouldn’t be any surprise about it. This universal collective psyche ushers human life ahead every moment; we don’t realize it, that’s another thing. At the heart of any creation lies a cosmic desire/ambition that a tiny dot expands to fill the universe and a brief moment discovers itself as eternity. Atman descends to earth as the same tiny dot or the brief moment only to ascend and ultimately merge with the highest. Woman is the force of gravitation. She can contain him, but only with the possibility for the ascent. The central logic of the process of the world is that some day the ‘Mahashakti’/ Woman/Earth will have to get to the ‘Mahatej’/Atman (the luminous light). This process of transforming human into god/superhuman shouldn’t be a matter of astonishment.

This is the crux of Kandu-Pramlocha love story as reinscribed by dear Nagarji with a new insight and a fresh form. The poet has experienced the truth which he unfolds in this poem; the truth that every moment of experience; whatever past, present or future-is not associated with action only, it is associated with an act and a thought -seed equally.

Genuine creativity only can give birth to such a metaphorical poem. My dear Nagarji, who is a younger brother to me, has written the metaphorical myth in the most aesthetic manner which may lend readers wings to the sublime experience, namely the ultimate experience of any art. Heartiest congratulations !!
