Nabina Das is a poet, writer, editor based in New Delhi.
Her novel, ‘Footprints in the Bajra’ is forthcoming from Cedar Books (Pustak Mahal), India.
Nabina’s explorations for the Studio entail working on a series of poems that dialogue with the City and its Inhabitants, resulting in a workshop with other artists/participants. Her project is tentatively titled, ‘Jajabor: The Migrant City’. She will work with other artists, writers, studio participants on creating poems, essays, haikus on “City Memorabilia” – songs, videos, advertisements, monuments, street signs, restaurants, slums, bazaars, skylines…”
The project runs from February to August 2010. A workshop in July-August will require me to be present in New Delhi. A final report will be submitted to Sarai-CSDS by November.
