Join us for an unusual evening of poetry and literature at Jus Trufs, with acclaimed poet Sabarna Roy.
Sabarna Roy (44) is a Civil Engineer from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. He works in a senior management position in a manufacturing and engineering construction company.
An avid reader and a film buff, Roy is widely travelled in India and lives in Kolkata with his family. He started writing during his university days, mostly English and Bengali poems. He stopped writing after he left university and took up employment.
After a gap of 19 years, he started writing once again mostly to reconnect with himself.
In 2010 he published a book comprising a long story and four long narrative poems titled Pentacles and in 2011 a book comprising a story cycle (of 14 short stories) and a poem cycle (of 21 poems) titled Frosted Glass with Frog Books.
“Darling, the mind goes numb, silent and asphyxiated in the evenings these days
And I lose the illusions of my mind and my heart that I have created before you
Like a crafty magician all these years
As the night takes over the universe it is the failings of my body that well up
In the movie screens – multiplex – of my mind
And not the ponds, grasslands, sunflowers and cemeteries
I have been telling you since my youth”
