Lily on the Northern Sky

Author Name: Aurobindo Ghosh | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry

Sorry we are currently not available in your region.

Lily on the Northern Sky are images of human behaviour and a humble narration of existential paradoxes, though, without love and emotion, life becomes meaningless. Superstitions must not supersede our living being.

‘Twins in the womb’ gives a classical narrative of the killing of a girl child who resists dying. In the womb of the mother, when the sister asks her brother,

‘You go first, dear brother,

They will be happy to get a boy.

Then I come to be overlooked,

Perhaps I shall not die as a coy.’

She puts a question mark on the very existence of womanhood.

Similarly, the girl ‘Laxmi’ who was born and brought up on the platform of a railway station and destined to become mother at the age of fifteen, finds hyenas everywhere.

‘Alice’ has described how ‘Fooling others’ is a big-time lucrative profession in India.

The author was in teaching and administrative positions in the state of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Union Territory of DNH of India.

He writes in Bengali, English and Hindi. Two Bengali books, one a collection of short stories and the other of poems, are in the pipeline of publication.

He travels a lot and writes travelogues. Out of many countries of Asia and Europe, he finds the UAE fascinating. He describes the UAE as “a manmade heaven in desert”.

He has established himself as an artist who has expertise in Warli paintings. He uses bold, vibrant acrylic colours. His own creations of artifacts are very close to his heart.

If at all he gets time, he listens to Indian classical music.
