We have been part of the publishing industry for the past 20 years.
We began in 1992 with Abhida, a journal dedicated to Marathi poetry, which later metamorphosed into a quarterly - Abhidhanantar which redefined and refined the way Marathi poetry was received till then by its readers and presented fantastic contemporary Marathi poets and their works, essays and literary criticism.
This paved the way to getting books of Marathi poetry being published under the imprint Abhidhanantar.
Potkar speaks with the cutting clarity of a woman wholly engaged with the world. She writes from the gilded moment vulnerability becomes knowledge, and then when knowledge becomes wisdom. The result, in all cases, is the poem: clever and crafted to a kind of broken perfection—the cracks show, but the shattered places are dusted with powdered gold. “If a day is a life, a word is a story,” Potkar writes. Her poetry condenses life into a gilded day, a story into a single word, as only a masterful poet can do it, or a woman can feel it.
