PREVIEW FOR BOOK LAUNCH OF "I MUSE..." - A COLLECTION OF GITA IYENGAR'S POEMS
The book is a collection of Gita Iyengar's poems who passed away last year. She was a closet poet. We, at Nivasini are proud to present the work of such a fine poet.
A few poems will be read by Rochelle Potkar who will be coming here from Mumbai.
The book is a collaborative effort of Gita's friends Meena, Cheryl, Kamal and Gita's son, Prashanth to share her world of poetry with all of us.

It is difficult to say when a particular poem was written, or which event moved unobtrusively, autobiographically or imaginatively into text, rhyme or verse. Gita always ?mused?!
