1. (in Indian mythology) a member of a semi-divine race, part human, part cobra in form, associated with water and sometimes with mystical initiation.

The Naga, is the serpent of literary criticism. It wields the venomous aspect of words, to strike, to criticise, to deliver literary truth to its readers. The Naga, is neither he nor she, no gender, no good, no evil, but seeks to deliver its judgement without conforming to rules, religions and barriers. The Naga, is not your friend. It is a tool. An animal. A cyborg. A mystical being. Maybe a demon.

The Naga, aims to deliver the much-needed art of producing literary wonders in the form of poetry, plays and performances.

  1. Elancharan, I want to extend my gratitude to you for your support and encouragement, as I’ve noticed that you have liked several of my poems thus far since I’ve started my poetry blog. I really like the theme of your blog. It’s a simple theme, one which allows the words of written pieces to speak for themselves. This kind of zen-like simplicity is what I aim for on my site, so maybe that’s why the look and feel of our two blogs is similar. Again, thanks for the likes and I hope you’ll continue to drop by every now and then.

        Thanks again


  2. Just sending out a much-belated thank you for following and liking a post on The Expositrix! I’m trying to get my head screwed back on and get back to writing– and check out your site as well.

  3. Elan, thank you for the ‘like’ of my poem, The Wish and your subsequent ‘follow’ of my blog, Postcard from a Pigeon. Although poetry is not my vehicle of choice, sometimes, when the mood takes you then needs must. The strange thing about The Wish was it was sitting, abandoned, in my ‘draft’ folder, probably because, having started it, I couldn’t finish. Yet when I found it last night, it had acquired a new meaning so I posted it. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    1. Africa and India have had history of colonisation and slavery. Both locations were cradles of human civilisation. Assimilation of languages could have happened during travels, migration and human interaction a long time back. Coincidental or not, the beauty is in how these words seem to have been derived from each other and have evolved to be almost similar, taking a form of their own.

  7. I just stopped by to say hello. It’s good to read works by someone in another country. A talent is a talent and not restricted to race or colour. I really enjoyed reading the poems I have read.
