Prithvindra Chakravarti / Man Moon Earth

  • Prithvindra Chakravarti / Man Moon Earth
This collection covers periods in Prithvindra Chakravarti’s life and the reflections and insights he gained into the life of the village-dwelling peasants, artisans and entertainers in West Bengal, where he was born; and in his later periods in Kolkata, Chicago, Papua New Guinea, China and the Northern Territory in Australia. The title poem stands out as his signature poem: the juxtaposition of the often terrible reality of man’s earthly dilemma; the serenity, comfort and protection of the ‘all watching’ and safe ‘moon’; and the penetrating commentary on the beauty of nature and the ‘earth’.
