Description
About the Author

Poet and dance produce/curator, Karthika Nair was born in Kerala and lives in Paris. Nair is the author of Bearings (HarperCollins India, 2009, a poetry collection, and The Honey Hunter/Le Tiger de Mile (Young Zubaan, India/Editions Helium, France, 2013), a children’s book illustrated by Joelle Jolivt. She was also the principal scriptwriter of DESH, choreographer Akram Khan’s award-winning dance production.

In Karthika Nair’s resume as an enabler, one finds mention of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Damien Jalet, Kafig/Mourad Merzouki, two Olivier awards, Auditorium Musica per Roma, the Louvre, the Shaolin Temple, misadventures with ninja swords and pachyderms, among others, many of which make their way willy-nilly into her poetry (though, hopefully, not into this retelling of the Mahabharata).
