This Glorious Noise

Five South Asian diaspora poets celebrate the UK-India Year of Culture 2017 by reading poems showcasing their different experiences.

Mona Dash and Professor Bashabi Fraser have come directly from India, as subcontinentals; Dr Debjani Chatterjee MBE has seen displacement by living through a prism of cultures; Rishi Dastidar was born and grew up in London, and has a particular take on Britain; and Yogesh Patel, born in Kenya of Indian origin but a British citizen by birth, has his own struggles to express.

Yogesh Patel, publisher-editor of Skylark Publication UK, highlights poetry from four new collections in this rare outing.
