Saturday 1 November Mandakranta Sen is a prominent voice in contemporary Bengali poetry. Her literary engagement spans various genres: she has authored 19 collections of poems, eight novels, two volumes of short fiction and a book of essays. She originally studied medicine but decided to switch tracks in the middle of her final examination and commit herself to a life in literature.
Today she works, as she puts it, as a "translator, playwright, lyricist, composer, cover designer and editor of a little magazine," and her own work has been widely translated. Her Leftist leanings combine with outspoken sensuality to carve out a unique brand of forthright and yet lyrical verse, which has set a benchmark of sorts for contemporary Bengali poetry". An exuberant series of paeans to freedom, there is a stout refusal to allow an outmoded script of passive victimhood to perpetuate itself.
The "indelible script of fate" is erased without apology, and destiny rewritten "in the blue grammar book" with impunity and irrepressible schoolgirlish glee. Disobedience in these poems is a virtue, a credo, transmuted into a lyrical manifesto. Demure blue saris uncoil, morphing into tempestuous rivers in which hapless lovers with their outmoded worldviews might drown.
Virginal, sleeping nightdresses awaken as wild, winged textiles and fly away, "wildly astray", even as the rest of the world slumbers on — unaware of the nocturnal mutiny enacted around them. If the woman of the forest knows how to shed blood, the colonizing male must learn to shed his equally incarcerating armour.
