The Blurb

Where Even the Present is Ancient: Benaras is a book that seeks to tell the little stories that make us who we are. The author believes that Benaras resides in all of us Indians, in some beautiful often-unknown way. 
 
The author is the Sutradhar, in that she attempts to connect an India that many do not realize exists, in that it is everybody’s story.
 
Radha, Krishna, Ganga, Benaras and Me are all characters in this deluge of poems. This attempt at telling the story of the ancient, of love and of faith is to instill the confidence that poetry exists in all of us, everywhere, all that is needed is to smell its fragrance. 
 
To those outside India, Where Even the Present is Ancient: Benaras does not seek to be a representation of what India is or was, but a whiff of what it also can be.
 
It is an attempt to ask people to see the little stories that govern all of our lives, stories that we often don’t see, but those that are important. The audience for this book might be strewn across the globe, for faith is not religion-centric, it is people- centric and often without dimensions. 
 
In poetry there is no beginning, no middle, nor no end. Like faith it is everywhere, it is omnipresent.
 
The book, Where Even the Present is Ancient: Benaras affords no answers, nor no questions, but if you listen and read carefully you will see new things, a new beauty perhaps, one that has been silent so long.
