My Voice

When we started kritya Poetry journal in 2005, we introduce kritya like this –

I am Kritya.
Kritya – the intense word power.
Kritya – which always moves along with the ultimate truth.
Kritya – which exists completely in accord with rightness.
I reside in the hearts of people who raise their voice in protest against all lies, all wrong doings and all injustice. I appear before them in myriad forms, one of the most powerful media being poetry.

Poetry – which was the noblest form of expression from time immemorial.
Poetry – which today stands marginalized.
Poetry – which flies on the wings of dreams.
Poetry – which in the height of insanity walks bare footed on hard reality.
Poetry – which is the voice of revolution.
Poetry – which teaches us to love, to stand face to face with real life, to give up one’s existence for sake of the life.
Poetry – which synchronises observations with pure emotions, which links the eyes to the heart.
Time and space are the biggest factor in poetry. The perspective could be the same in every poet, but when the poet talks about his time and space, it crosses the boundary of personals and reaches the wider expanse of universe. That is why, after many years we feel that we need kritya-poetry in contemporary time also.
We could not continue the old form of kritya poetry journal due to technical reasons. Technology means to discard the past, but poetry means to understand the past and learn from it. We have to maintain equilibrium. That is why we renew the shape of kritya and with more poetry.

Best wishes
