Critically acclaimed British poet Daljit Nagra performs extracts from his latest collection Ramayana: A Retelling. Daljit Nagra was captivated by the versions of the Ramayana his grandparents regaled him with as a child. Now an award-winning poet, he has chosen to bring the story to life in a vivid and enthralling version of his own. Accessible and engaging, and bursting with energy, Nagra's Ramayana is a distillation and an animation for readers of all ages. Nagra was born and raised in West London, then Sheffield, and currently lives in London where he works as a teacher. His first collection of poetry, Look We Have Coming to Dover!, won the 2007 Forward Prize for Best First Collection and was shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award. In 2008 he won the South Bank Show/Arts Council Decibel Award. His second collection, Tippoo Sultan’s Incredible White-Man-Eating Tiger Toy-Machine!!!, was shortlisted for the T S Eliot Prize in 2011. He is the first BBC Poet In Residence.
