Haiku in India

| Introduction | page 2 | page 3 | page 4 | page 5 | page 6 |

Haiku is thriving in India. Conferences and festivals are held, haiku is beginning to be introduced at college level and of course, we’ve been reading haiku written from India in international haiku journals for a long time. One thing is clear from this feature: in India, there is a growing haiku community and a network of haiku practitioners from India’s various regions.

Kala Ramesh and her haiku students and friends provide us with some glimpses of haiku as it is practised, taught and discussed in the multi-faceted, culturally rich country that is India. AHG thanks Kala and all who generously contributed to ‘Haiku in India’.
