New Arrival- Ten: The New Indian Poets Edited by Jayanta Mahapatra & Yuyutsu Sharma

Ten is a groundbreaking anthology of fresh poetry from India just published by Nirala Publications. World renowned Indian poet Jayanta Mahapatra along with Yuyutsu Sharma selects ten poets writing in English to show case vivacious colours of new India. The majority of the poets included here come from humble middle class families, working silently and selflessly, serving the Muse without any hope of high material gain or media hype. In this light, the anthology bears testimony to hidden creative commotion feeding the flames of vigorous poetry alive in little known islands of the contemporary Indian culture.
