Details

Tankas from a Tsunami is a cycle of poems in the aftermath of the horrendous tsunami that struck the Asia-pacific region on 26th December 2004; taking nearly 300,000 lives and leaving a trail of death and devastation that affected millions around the globe. The tsunami, Rajendra says, brought out the 'best and beast' in men: the courage / the corruption, the greed / the generosity. The self-sacrifice / the self-promotion, the brave and the braggart, etc. etc. It spiralled, he adds, into almost a metaphor of the human condition in the new millennium. For this most taxing themes, Mr Rajendra employs the tanka stanza: the daunting Japanese verse form of 5 lines comprising 31 syllables in a 5-7-5-7-7 arrangement. Tankas from a Tsunami is Mr Rajendra's 19th collection of poetry.
