Politics for Dummies

P Bhatnagar is a standout amongst the most driving voices of Indian English verse whose accumulations Thought Lyrics (1976), Feeling Fossils (1977), Blessed messengers of Retreat (undated), The Capable of being heard Scene, Oneric Dreams, Shadows in Floodlight (1984) and Cooling Flares of Murkiness (2001) bespeak of political awareness of the artist. As it is obvious truth that Indian English verse can never avoid the socio-political environment of India and artists who don’t compose under a solitary equation yet rather begin an exchange among ‘man and man’ so Bhatnagar too manages various issues of our general public and governmental issues.
