In this collection of poems about love, the family, landscapes, belonging and exile, Tabish Khair captures with uncanny lyrical precision, the fragile beauty of the past.

Each poem tells a story - whether it is in the smell of rain on earth, in the taste of mangoes ripening in the straw, in an old nurse's tales, or in a murder in South Delhi. Rich in metaphor and intensity, Khair's poems shine with an inner luminosity and sensuality.


Tabish Khair's poems locate us precisely where we can taste the raw mango, smell the khus and hear the rhythms of remembered ghazals. But through all this works the awareness of violence, the sense of the past as a person, breathing in the same room. - Imtiaz Dharkar
