Pain and Flesh

Indira Goswami (Author)
Synopsis The poems in this collection cover the various themes that have left an imprint on Dr. Goswami's heart and mind. The very themes which became the plots of her fictions have also become the imaginations and feelings expressed in her poems.  The terrible sense of pain that the sight of buffalo sacrifice creates in her, of an inexplicable surge of pain and awe that the river Brahmaputra brings about, of love and grief that company of the beloved offers…themes such as these has been the source of her prose as well as her poems in this collection.  In her own words, 'Life is a river of separation,' and the poems are experiences of being born into it, living in it and departing with death from it.  Being primarily a prose writer, Dr. Goswami considers her poems as footnotes to her fictions.  But often the poems transcend this and form a poetic world in itself.
