About the Author


 

Meera Nair's poetry belongs squarely to the tradition of contemporary Indian women's poetry pioneered by the likes of Kamala Das and Eunice D'Souza. The anguish of desire, the battle with the changing patterns and forms of patriarchy ranging from rape to indifference, the self-flagellation that Indian women are often forced into, the profound irony of being worshipped and spat at, atthe same time, the inhibitions and prohibitions that make her life a burning inferno: all these lend great intensity to these outpourings of a ravishedyet indefatigableheart. 

– K. Satchidanandan

                                

Intense and compelling, Meera’s poems feature life in all its rawness, unseasoned and fervent, deeply felt and poignantly unraveled. Here is poetry in all its subversive brilliance, unpacking words, emotions and thoughts that spill over and scatter, and then refuse to be primly packaged again

Meena T. Pillai, Director, Center for Cultural Studies,University of Kerala

 

Meera Nair was declared the runner-up (for Grey – Born When Black Invaded White) for “the beauty, irony, intensity and the spirit of combat enliven her poems.”
