The Journal-appearing Contemporary Indian English Poets


The journal poets generally promote one another
And their journals turn into a platform, a dais
For self-propaganda and publication,
The rhymers and non-poets favour the papers
Written on their poetry
And if the teachers get students registered on
The trivial verses of the petty poets and poetesses
And what to say about the vanity,
The ego and hypocrisy of
The poetical research guide and the student
Joining the university department?

A research scholar cannot definitely explain
An evolving Indian poet in English,
The ragged guide with the ramshackle journal
Joins the P.G. deptt.
And the ragged Ph.D. scholar gets it published
After getting it written from the guide
And changing the language.

It is very nice to think
