Lily on the Northern Sky

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

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.
