Arvind Krishna Mehrotra once said, “Poets die, are mourned by other poets, and the matter ends there. A year goes by, then a decade, and nothing appears to tell the reading public why the poet deserves to be read and how he fitted into the larger story of a literature to which he spent a lifetime contributing.”
