About Author

I’m Anandi Zhang. I live in Auroville. Poetic since childhood, I lost it somewhere along the way. Then, inspired by Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri and sonnets, as well as Kabir, Rumi and others’ poems, the poetic sense came back to me, and very organically I started to write down poetic expressions from inspirations, observations and reflections of life experiences. Mostly, the “poems” come on their own, in a poetic sense, images, words or whole poems, and I simply pen them down.

For me, poetry is a life-juicer, life-saver, and life-enricher. And I hope to inspire poetry reading and writing in a lot of people, to bring back the Poet that we are as eternal children. [Read more…]

    O dear Anandi,
    Just watched with sheer joy two videos – “The rhythm of poetry” & “Manifesting through art” through which I rediscovered my old friend from the womb of silence in action as also an artist (Orev) who says, “Art is Yoga”!!! I found her Buddha sculpture simply marvellously pleasing to my eyes, to say the least. Sri Aurobindo says, “All life is Yoga”, you say, ” Life is Poetry’ while Orev says, “Art is Yoga”. Ah! What a grand synthesis of Truth of Life! Incredible!
