The Golden Boat

River poems


  In India, every river is a source of myth. Legends surround them, lives get intertwined with their waves, even as fortunes rise and fall with their ebb and flow. Ganga, Yamuna, Sindhu, Saraswati, Brahmaputra, Sarayu, Mahanadi, Krishna, Kaveri, Periyar: name them, and you encounter gods, goddesses, princes, princesses, demons and fairies whose tales they invoke. Indeed, the river has meaning for everyone, whether our lives are directly dependent on one or not.

This anthology of poems about the river from different parts of India, and in its myriad languages compiled by Professor K. Satchidanandan brings to life memories, stories and metaphors associated with rivers through the generations. Featuring the work of stalwarts such as Rabindranath Tagore, Iqbal, Dilip Chitre, Mamang Dai, J. P. Das, Keki N. Daruwalla, Ashok Vajpeyi and Padma Sachdev, among many others, with many of the poems presented here in the original language and script, apart from the translations in English, this unique volume is a collector’s treasure.
