Zeitgeistlyrik: Im Schatten des Himalaya
by Satis Shroff
In seiner Anthologie von Lyrik geht es zum Teil um politische Lyrik über den Krieg in Nepal, das traurige Schicksal der nepalesischen Bevölkerung, die Wiederentstehung von Neonazismus in Deutschland, Liebe und Frauenleiden. Seine bikulturelle Perspektive bereichern seine Gedichte, die herzzerreissend und traurig sind. Wenn er von ‚Heim’ spricht, kehrt er immer wieder zu seinem Herkunftsland.
