R. Raj Rao brings into play all the senses in focusing on an India which makes no concessions to the travel agent's romance or the aid agencies' image of defeated despair.

"Images of India, convincingly realistic, proliferate in these poems. We confront a variety of attitudes and values, which add up to a distinct personality and voice. There is no compromise with romantic urges. The inner search and its poetic expression are appropriately related; rough, sharp, ironic sometimes, and always serious."
Nissim Ezekiel

"This is finely crafted poetry which yet astonishes with its fierce scatological energy."
David Dabydeen

Raj Rao teaches at the University of Poona. He is also a playwright, short story writer and critic.
