A raga is a melodic composition in Indian classical music that imparts certain emotions. "Ragas From the Periphery" is a collection that uses language as its instrument. Phinder Dulai is first and foremost a South Asian writer, and while issues of identity and cultural immersion are central to his work, they are not all-encompassing. His poems are intimate landscapes in which themes of work, family, and community are always present. Crossing cultures linguistically and metaphorically, "Ragas From the Periphery" is an impressive debut collection.
Buy Ragas from the Periphery book by Phinder Dulai from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
