Bharati Nayak


Born on 26th May 1962 in Odisha, India, Bharati Nayak grew up in Cuttack and graduated from the famous Ravenshaw  College. She completed her Master’s degree in Political Science from Utkal University Bhubaneswar. Writing fascinated her from a very young age. She used to contribute regularly to school magazines. She believes that writing is a powerful medium that can bring about social change. Her poetry has since come of age and has been published in numerous national and international magazines and anthologies. Miss Nayak wrote “Me” expressly for this verse compendium. The poem attempts to locate a poet among the generations. The speaker sees writings as the signature that a writer leaves for posterity. Centuries hence, people can still have a glimpse of the poet through the writings.


Where was I?

I rose from null

And one day

Vanish into void        

For a short period

I play

On this stage

I pluck my words

From the trees

There are millions and millions

I choose a few only

To write here

And put my sign

Because when they will come

They will find me

In these letters

Because in these letters

I am and will always be

In my presence and absence

For generations from here

Because these words

Were there and will be there

In their presence and absence.
