Abhay K.'s interview to The Hindu

Abhay K.'s interview to The Hindu on the occasion of the release of his new poetry book Candling the Light

Poet Abhay K. whose latest anthology, “Candling the Light”, releases this Thursday tells Anjana Rajan of his vision for humanity
Shastri Bhawan, home to many government offices, is not what one associates with the stuff of poetry. Yes, one might think of it as the place where files moulder and dreams await fulfilment, sometimes for endless years. But a place where dreamers go daily and work for the betterment of society? Not quite the right use of words, one would object. Yet this is where you will find poet Abhay K., an Under Secretary in the Government of India's External Affairs Ministry. What's more, he sees no dichotomy between his job and his poet's vocation.
