LISTENING

As a teacher, I am conditioned to move between ‘Can you hear me?’ and ‘Why don’t you listen to me?’ in the classroom. Listening, the subject of our Tin Trunk for this issue, asks various questions of the experience: Meherin RoshanaraDebolina Dey and Jyotirmoy Talukdar speak about various genres of listening, audible and inaudible, in their poems; Anu Kumar writes about listening to Hindustani classical music as a child; Daya Bhat’s short story tells us what it means to be imprisoned in sound; Goirick Brahmachari’s photo-essay is an investigation of listening as it plays out in the creases and curves on human faces, and Madhumita Das’s photo-essay is about the cosmopolitanism of the listening experience.

We’d love to ‘hear’ from you too.
