Poetry in this collection courses ahead observing life in entirety, like a river, winding back and forth along slopes; gushing down mountains; and making way through valleys. The poems, in long and short forms, explore deeper meanings in mundane sights and sounds, and are not confined to any geographical place. One can connect with the poems due to their universality. The ubiquitous influence in the writing is because the poems tend to veer more towards the core of things than what meets the eye.
Daya Bhat has been living in Bangalore, India for twenty-seven years and calls the bustling city her home. She has travelled to places outside India and has invariably returned with a strong sense that human psyche remains unaltered across geographies. She feels, while travelling broadens our horizon, it teaches us to look at our own roots with a fresh perspective and helps us reconnect with them in a new way.
Daya enjoys painting and has a tiny collection of artworks created in water and poster colors. Though her formal education is in the fields of Electronics and Computer Science, she connects deeply with creative writing. Poetry is what gives her a sense of completion. She published her first book of poems, ‘A maiden of 29’ with the Writers Workshop, India in 2013. Since her first book she has contributed poetry and short fiction to literary publications in and outside India. ‘River twin’ is her second book of poems.
