Wingword Poetry Prize 2019

It gives me great pleasure to share with you that my Marathi poem, सरळसोट, has won the Wingword Poetry Prize.



Here's the recitation. Hope you enjoy it.







- The Last Nomad

Poem: Life and death in five minutes

It was the year 2020, when we did this crazy thing, Gathering on rooftops, balconies, and all places we could. To play gongs, plates, whistles and clapped for everyone who helped us survive a deathwave.
This moment did what many could not. It brought us together, different people from distinct worlds, To experience the flip of a coin. One flip and our world will change. Before we assumed our differences again, we realized we are life.
