Meet Rohit, our new intern!

Rohit Dasgupta, a student of Comparative Literature from Jadavpur University, joined Kalam as an intern from March and will be with us for the next 6 months. He came to us as a fellow from Seagull’s Choice Programme. In his words…

“What really caught my curiosity was the fact that unlike so many other NGOs, this was one organisation which was concentrating on honing the creative skills of individuals from the marginalised parts of the society. Since the Literary arts are close to both my academic as well as extra-curricular interests, I chose to take on the challenge of working with Kalam. As an individual I love writing poetry, reading, and blogging prolifically, the three tools which have been coming handy as far as my work with Kalam is concerned.”

Rohit will be helping us with closely analyzing and documenting our literary arts workshops, as well as with blogging. He will further help Kalam create a bank of poems, vignettes, extracts, stories written/published in Bangla and Hindi (or in translation from foreign or other Indian languages) that are likely to appeal to young people who do not necessarily have advanced formal education.

See Rohit’s blog to know more about him and his perspectives.

    A Big Welcome Rohit

    from a few thousand miles away
    you’re lucky to be there today
    it’s lovely now it’s Spring in UK
    but I’d swap it almost any day
    to be with marginswrite people
    who helped my soul soar beyond any steeple
    or mineret or temple or gudwari
    I look foward to your write thoughts
    even if we don’t meet
    our words may intertwine
    and that, that will be fine
