Water is alive

Eternal waters away - Dylan Thomas

 

Like a fickle spirit

Water modulates its voice and changes.

Thunder roar in the ravine

Deafening silence in the lake

 

Relentless movement of the tides

Crash of waves on the cliffs

 

Sound of a fierce hurricane

Tinkling of a delicate rain

 

Rhythmic beat of the drop

Treacherous crunch of ice

 

Crackling and icy hail

Silent and timid dew

 

Eternally guiding us to its knowledge.

 

Gianpiero, Actis, Italy

Event Report
 
Rhythm Divine Poets celebrated the International Dylan Thomas Day, or Dylan Day as it is commonly referred to, in India for the first time this year. The event, which took place in the historical city of Kolkata, was held in the beautiful apartment of Professor Tathagata Sen of Bhawanipur Education Society College. It consisted of an academic discussion on Modernity and the poetry of Dylan Thomas by noted academicians, and a Dylan-inspired poetry reading session.
 
 
At the onset of the academic discussion, Dr. Shubhadeep Paul spoke on "Dylan Thomas and Bob Dylan: Transtextual Interlacings & Creative Mistranslations", thus looking at Dylan the poet AND Dylan, the man from the same vantage point. Dr. Sudeshna Chakravorti spoke about the Difference in Dylan Thomas's Approach to Life and Art as opposed to the other modernists like Eliot, stressing on the importance of an 'opposing' or a different voice in societal or literary spaces. Prof. Aparna singh chose to speak on the Critical Reception of the works of Dylan Thomas, speaking of the critics who praised him, as well as the ones who wrote him off. This entire session of academic discussions was moderated by Ms. Sufia Khatoon. 
 
 
A beautiful poetry reading session followed the formal talk. All the poems recited were influenced by the life and works of Dylan Thomas in some way or the other. For instance, Nikita Parik (Poet, and Chief Coordinator for this event in particular) created a repartee of 'A Refusal to Mourn the Death' by fusing the death of the little girl in London with that of children in Kashmir. Sufia Khatoon read a poem on existences and the cycle of life and death, themes that are recurrent in the poetry of Dylan Thomas. The beautiful evening came to an end with the official release of Green is the Colour of Memory, a poetry anthology by Huzaifa Pandit, winner of the international Poetry Chapbook competition organised by Rhythm Divine Poets.
