Writing Self: The Poetry of Sujata Bhatta

Manoranjan Behura


Sujata Bhata, a post- modern Indian diasporic poet, lives in Germany and writes about India and Gujurat keeping herself in the centre. The poet and her sense of Indenisation are the main theme of the writings. She is the only Indian diasporic poet who even uses three languages-English, Germany and Gujurati- in a poem which is her uniqueness as a poet. Though her writings are autobiographical, they have a super sense of indigenous culture.
