About Me and My Poetry

Namaskar, I am Balkrishna Sonawane from Chopda, Dist: Jalgaon, situated at the foot of Satpura Mountain ranges in Maharashtra State of India. I am 57 year old and a lover of poetry. I have been writing poetry in Marathi since I was a youth of 20. Few of my poems are published by Anubandh Prakashan, Pune in an anthology entitled 'Stree Suktachya Kavita'. Today, I am known to many lovers of poetry, reading Marathi poetry. My poems have been published in many reputed Marathi periodicals like 'Kavita Rati', 'Anushtubh', 'Nav-Anushtubh', 'Akanksha', as well as Daily Newspapers and other minor journals. I have also written poetry for news papers on some occasions of vitality. Though I write in Marathi, I have curiosity and thirst for poetry in other languages too. My friend and an avid reader of English poetry Dr. Jagdish S. Patil, Asst. Professor of English, Dhanaji Nana College, Faizpur, Dist: Jalgaon (M. S. ) helps me in getting in touch with new movements in English poetry. He is known for translation of a best-seller book 'Who Killed Karkare?' related to 26/11 Mumbai attacks, published by 'Shabda Publication', Mumbai. Being an academician in English Literature and Linguistics he has published and read several research papers at national and international level in India, U. K. and U.A.E. He has also endeavored to translate my Marathi poem-anthology 'Stree Suktachya Kavita'. We are seeking a quality publisher to get them ready to be tasted by the English tongues. thanks...
