Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

Narrating Partition in South Asia: Recent Trends and Perspectives
From the global to the individual level, our sense of community has undergone a profound transformation within just a couple years. Where it once suggested closeness and intimacy, community now paradoxically demands that we maintain a healthy distance from one another—each one of us a monad tucked away in our respective homes, our old sources of community displaced as they transition to virtual formats. We even maintain patterns of disciplined isolation to protect the health and safety of those whom we would otherwise not need to consider.
