Featured Artist: M.P. Pratheesh


This is a reflection on  language. All  human activities- thoughts, imagination and language itself –  form what we call Culture. Everything else is the Nature. I believe in  a language  rooted in  the   blood and sweat of human body, culture and that  of the Earth. This object poem seeks to gather  traces of the alphabets of another language.  A language that springs from  both Nature and Culture. A language learned from within ourselves.
