The elemental relevance of poetry in lives and times such as ours is what binds this conversation with poet Ranjit Hoskote and Journalist Supriya Nair together. Ranjit’s newest collection of poetry, Hunchprose is a response to and reflection of the many lives the poet possesses within him. 

This conversation delves deep into inspirations, memories, mythologies, other literatures, stories  and experiences that affords us a glimpse into the life of the polymath and how life traces verse and vice versa.
