How do we understand borders beyond maps? How do poets deal with old borders, with the borders of the mind, the borders undefined?
Gerhard Falkner was born in erstwhile West Germany and witnessed dissolving borders as the Berlin wall came down.
Naseem Shafaie, Kashmiri poet, often writes about the double consciousness of her identity. Sri Lankan Tamil poet, Sopa wrote all through the recently concluded civil war in his country. In conversation with Arundhati Subramaniam, they will speak of being perched on and crossing over multiple imaginations of home.
