he grapples with it extensively repeatedly and with a febrile level of intensity Two centuries ago one could talk of the body and the mind as distinct objects; some even talked of the soul Today we have to face up to the fact that chemical and micro-electrical impulses inside a small organ encased by the skull in fact may be the only soul we have Sanskrit poets felt that a heightened sense of discrimination — which they referred to as “viveka” separated humans from other life forms Seshadri is wryly aware that these divisions may be artificial After all consciousness may just be visible on a brain scan in one’s “perisylvian pathways and declivities” Our earlier consensus clearly stands “startled” The piece de resistance of the anthology is the longish “Personal Essay” Unlike Eliot who makes a separation between Little Gidding and Burnt Norton Seshadri writes his poem in one continuous stanza with no breaks whatsoever He seems to be making the point that in the 21st century we live in parallel time not in sequential space We are simultaneously aware of the screen on which we are writing the music that filters in through our earphones our non-conversations with neighbours our electrical connections to the outer universe and so much more And in the midst of it all each of us remains “a face astonished by itself in the mirror” He has already told us elsewhere that he is a man trapped in a man’s body Now he goes on to tell us that our “identities are either accidents or conspiracies which are the same” The poem is a long meditation on the human predicament not only in this universe of infinite spaces but entirely simultaneously in Brooklyn and JFK airport very tangible immediate physical neighbourhoods Seshadri’s use of the figure of speech of repetition repeating himself once twice and then repeating himself in yet another way is brilliant to the point of out-Elioting Eliot His ability to relate the physical to the personal trances each of us has to live with sets him apart as one of the poets of the English language who will over the years grow in stature Let me end with two quotes from the poem “Personal Essay” with every hope that readers will buy his book (the price at Rs 299 is paltry as the poet himself would in probability say): l “Look at an old man on a street with fixed concentration and he resolves/ Into his colours and shapes and durations/ He’s arbitrary He’s accidental/ He could have been put together in a number of ways/ Why this instead of that He could be a toy He is a toy but whose/ Look at his neighbourhood with the concentration of an eight-year-old/ and slowly it resolves to a composition comprising/ rectangles triangles boxes lines polygons convex polygons/ parallelograms rhomboids quadrilaterals pyramids dodecagons hexagons octagons/ stars of Lakshmi arbelosdeltoids Archimedean spirals/ magatamas triquetras Yin-Yangs” l “Stare at a word in a book long enough and that word/ slowly uncouples itself from what it means/ The meaning backs away/ The meaning is being evicted from/ The structure of glyphs that it has rented” I rest my case The writer is a Mumbai-based entrepreneur For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News or a ‘volunteer assistant’ attached to a Cabinet minister, PTI According to a report by DNA, There was, Opposition must come up with a better strategy.By: Express Web Desk | Hyderabad | Published: March 4 2017 1:45 pm Baahubali 2: Rana Daggubati had shared the first look as King Bhalla on his birthday Related News The war hero of Tollywood, Such changes will lead to workers losing jobs on a large?"
