About FOOTPRINTS IN THE BAJRA (Cedar Books, New Delhi); By Nabina Das
"Fittingly for a poet, Nabina’s novel also has a strong lyrical core. 'Footprints in the Bajra' takes the homely image of the millet field as its central metaphor. ... But the novel is less a thriller about guerrilla action than a subtly colored character study of a fascinating group of individuals who intersect at various points in their lives ..." -- DEBRA CASTILLO, author, editor and distinguished professor (Cornell University, April 17, 2010).

Cross-posts from Blogger Friends
I have earlier cross-posted poet Joy Leftow's work on my blog (and would love to do some more...). Now, apart from poetry, quite a few of my blogger friends write wonderful commentaries, essays, stories and memoir pieces. So I thought of doing this exciting thing in 2009 -- post my friends' blogs, anything they consider important or special, on my blog with a link to Facebook (for those of you who are on my Facebook contacts list). I'll be starting with Tikuli Dogra who writes poems, stories, and articles on parenting/travel/nature/social issues. Monday evening, Eastern Time, Tikuli's post will be there to read. I am excited. Aren't you all? See ya Monday then!
