Lingavishappu by Vishnu Prasad

By | 2013-11-11T01:06:56+00:00 November 11th, 2013|Malayalam, Poetry|

In a recent interview with Madhyamam newspaper, the author talks about the 'hunter's viewpoint' when it comes to sexual assaults. Vishnu Prasad feels better understanding the hunter's social conditions is important enough and is seldom thought of. He feels male sexuality is suppressed in Kerala's social conditioning. He goes to the extent of claiming men are more sexually frustrated than women. He details the 'hunter's viewpoint' in detail in some of his poems, like the recently controversial "Linga vishappu" in which he says, the man's under wear that gets torn from excessive masturbation does not lie about his social condition, about the suppressed hunger of the penis.

Boredom is taken to be the worst evil. Immersing themselves in pleasure, whether sensual or intellectual, aesthetic people live overwhelmingly for the moment, in search of yet another self-gratifying experience. Pierre Reverdy and the poetry of Mad Men. Musings on desolation and the moment.

Because rather than big events, we have focused on big patterns. And while we disagree on a lot many things here - political, cultural, developmental, social, and personal, I hope we all agree that Kerala got it mostly right in the past 55 years. Because Kerala is the No.1 state in India, here we go, and as always we would like to hear your thoughts.

Life of a day

But there are so few days as compared to people, not to mention dogs, that it would be surprising if a day were not a hundred times more interesting than most people.
