Tether That Light – Debasish Lahiri
3 in stock
Time is a recording of the lingering of light: in things, in nature, in the mind. This luminous history becomes the stuff of legends. Religion puts girdles of faith round it and art wades into its flow. Tether that Light is an attempt to pick up and follow the trail of light left in selected Indian miniature paintings, themselves on the trail of visions left like sun and moon signatures by the earliest poets. The poems unpack a treasure-chest of emotions and experiences: from love to despair, from the political to the erotic. On the page, the triptychs begin leftward with the recounting of a legend, the painter’s vision appears centrally on the page, while the contemporary poet’s musings drift to the right.
