A publishing house for Marathi poets.

‘‘I have to put Stanley’s poems down.
It is after midnight and I have not written
a new line. Stanley says that if a rhyme
comes knocking at your door, a special
delivery from the Post Office, just let
the fellow in. When he falls naturally
in the glove, smack of willow right
in the middle of the ball, middling it,
getting the deftness right, you arrive
at epiphany, and without effort.”

– an excerpt from the poem True Stanley

Earthen lamps ledge
Precarious as hope
Flickering the night, with
The assurance of old hands, trembling
This is magic
Unseen, unannounced, yet final and
Fleeting
Quiet as the neighbour
Who drinks his whiskey in silence
And sinks into his house without a word.
Let’s string raindrops, next time.

    About the author

    Born in 1942, Vasant Abaji Dahake is a well-known Marathi poet, critic, essayist, playwright, novelist, short fiction writer and artist. His first collection of poems, Yogabhrashta (1972), instantly established him as a successor to the early modernists in Marathi literature such as Mardhekar, P.S. Rege and Vinda Karandikar. He has received several awards, including the Sahitya Akademi Award for his collection Chitralipi for the year 2009. In 2014 he received the Vinda Karandikar Lifetime Achievement Award from the Government of Maharashtra. His writings show an influence of existentialist-marxist writers. His poetry is often dark and engaging. He was associated with the little magazine movement in Marathi during the mid-sixties. Dahake is married to Prabha Ganorkar, also a writer and lives in Amravati. Rahee Dahake has been writing and translating in English for the past two decades.

“We have been part of the publishing industry for nearly three decades.”

In 1992, Marathi poet Hemant Divate started a little magazine, Abhidha, a journal dedicated to new Marathi poetry, which metamorphosed, five years later, into AbhidhaNantar, a quarterly. The magazine refined – and redefined – the way in which Marathi poetry was received by presenting only the best modern poets and their works, and by providing a critical and cultural context through essays and literary criticism. A robust and receptive readership paved the way to AbhidhaNantar becoming a publishing imprint in the year 2000.

In 2003, Poetrywala was born. Initially dedicated to Marathi poetry, the ambit was extended to poetry in English and in translation. Today, with a list of over 100 titles, this indie press has done much to galvanise the poetry publishing scene in India, across languages, constituencies and markets.

When Hemant and his wife Smruti co-founded Paperwall Media & Publishing Pvt Ltd., Poetrywala continued to sit comfortably within the purview of Paperwall’s mission statement: To be a champion of intelligent writing and excellent quality; to be a hospitable home for literary aspirants and established authors alike; to be a force against the current of instant-success and easy-reads.

“With diversifications into other genres – prose, literary fiction, critical essays, and writing for young adults – our future looks busy, and bright!”
