Andal - The Autobiography of a Goddess
with Ravi Shankar

 

‘…a translation mavern’s dream.’

John Stanley Hawley
Columbia University 

“...verse that swirls between sensuality and
sacred delirium – and a profusion of Andals,
edgy, erotic and darkly ecstatic.”

— Arundhathi Subramaniam

Poet

‘.(.rise to meet Andal with grace and fire, and transport her words, her worlds, to us, unafraid of its immeasurable depths)… as much a feat of courage and love as of craft and ingenuity.’ 

— Karthika Nair

Award winning poet, dance producer.
