Vikram Seth

Vikram Seth (born 20 June 1952) is an Indian poet and author.


  • Some men like Jack and some like Jill
    I'm glad I like them both but still
    I wonder if this freewheeling
    Really is an enlightened thing,
    Or is its greater scope a sign
    Of deviance from some party line?
    In the strict ranks of Gay and Straight
    What is my status: Stray? Or Great?
    • Dubious from 'Mappings' (Writers Workshop, Calcutta, 1980).
    • Repeated by Seth in online interview.

  • Imagining the flower-pot attacked it
    The kitten flung the violets near and far
    And yet, who knows? This morning, as I backed it,
    My car was set upon by a parked car.
    • Malefic Things from All You Who Sleep Tonight (Viking/Penguin India, 1990).
