A selection of the poems of Jayanta Mahapatra and a critical introduction by Professor Nandini Sahu





 

Amazon's Best Selling author Nandini Sahu's recent poetry collection, A SONG, HALF & HALF

A Song, Half & Half is a  range of Nandini's love poems, written between 14th February 2021 and 14th February 2022. The poems play around the poet’s ideas on complex human emotions, relationships, romantic love, even humour and of course the existential issues of life. The tone and tenor of these poems are a different ball game altogether; here one can notice a sea change in the moods, modes and mores of the mythical poet Nandini. Here, she reveals as much as she conceals. Penned as soliloquies from her covid bed, in memory of her love, and then the rekindling of love in her ‘Ocean’, these are her politically incorrect poems. Here Nandini celebrates an anonymous love that is still knocking her door, and the personae has left the door ajar.

Dynamics of Children's Literature, Ed. Nandini Sahu and S Samtani, Shubhi Publications, Gurgaon,, 2017. 

Children’s literature is very old in origin; it has become truly interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary today, associated with many other fields―like literary studies vis-à-vis children’s studies, children’s geographies, children’s media studies, visual arts, cartoons, animation, mythology, folklores, performing arts, children’s culture, history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, theology, education, political science, library science, information science, and so on. This book intends to create a pool of specialized theorists, authors and critics working in tandem with these concepts and disciplines to the making of children’s literature.
