Luminous Tentacles: Poems

Ezhil Vendhan (Author)

The poem entitled 'Banyan Tree’ is an acclaimed masterpiece of Dr.Ezhil Vendhan’s writings. Its original Tamil version was selected as the best Tamil poem at the Multi -Lingual Poets Symposium 1995 held in New Delhi, in conjunction with the Indian Republic Day. This poem was translated into eighteen languages and was simultaneously broadcasted around the world through the All India Radio channels on the eve of India’s Republic Day. The Hindi version of this poem was published in the magazine Bhasha by the Central Hindi Directorate of India. Later, the poem was translated into Kannada language and it was published by the Karnataka Sahithya Academy in its magazine Aniketana.

The poems, ‘To be born a Woman’ and ‘River’ were also translated from their original Tamil language into Punjabi and Kannada languages. The Punjabi version was launched by the Punjabi Sahitya Academy in Ludhiana, along with the Central Classical Institute of Tamil and the Kannada versions were published in the Kannada literary magazines Subhajyothi and Aniketana. The original Tamil version of the poem ‘River’ was published in the magazine Tamilarasu by the Tamil Nadu state government, while the Kannada version was subsequently published by the Karnataka Sahithya Academy literary magazine Aniketana. It is interesting to note that these accolades were given at a crucial point when there was a river water dispute existing between the Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

This ‘People’s Poet’ uncompromisingly echoes and records the murmurs of all the neglected sections of the people which had gone unnoticed, unheard and unheeded. The voice of the universe communicates through this poet. He deserves all adulations that he has been showered with from all quarters for being the poet of the people.
