Vidya Shankar

A poet and writer, I have been in ELT for more than two decades. My first book 'The Flautist of Brindaranyam', is a collection of poems that refer to scenes from Krishna's life in a non-conventional manner, thereby making it universally applicable. Besides being published in WRITE, a Sri Lankan Literary magazine, and a few anthologies, I have also been contributing for over four years, to the column 'Short Take' published in 'The Gulf Today', a Sharjah-based newspaper. My blog, 'The Quintessential Word', showcases my 'Short Take' articles and other random writing.
