Stories and poetry that explore trans-national identity-the stress and trauma in living across many boundaries. Social dialogue to create "Cultures of Peace"

Background Information

I grew up in India, living all over the subcontinent. As the first East Indian woman  graduate student at UMKC, an urban campus in the midwest for the first time I experienced myself as a part of the "coconut culture." Brown from the outside but an anglophile in many ways I learned to look at my own transnational identity.

A student of literature the activisim of the sixties led me to social work, with the various backgrounds, of academia as well as life lived being turned into poems and stories.   .

My first book "Family Matters and Other Ciomplications: assorted stories and poems crossing many borders" was published in 1910 and in the last few weeks another collection "Life Happens, and death Too" has been launched.
