Livewire is a monthly open mic that invites local performers, including comedians, storytellers, actors, musicians, and others to sign up and show off their talents. November’s featured performer is poet IndRani Mondal, whose fluency in English and Bengali and exposure to literature in both languages brings an inclusive dimension and a comparative edge to her writings. She also brings her gamut of people experiences, existential struggles and triumphs of life relationships to her work. Her poems are alive with sensual color and warm with sensitivity and emotion. They reflect social and cultural issues, sometimes with immigrant perceptions, always with universal human appeal. As a caregiver, she crafts medically challenging times into poetic expressions with skill and heart. Mondal has co-authored two novels of (medical) science fiction: Bugging Cancer and Three Daughters, Three Journeys, and two books of Bengali poems, Protidin Sati Hoi(The Daily Sunder) and Raater Sarir (Body of the Night). Fugitive Wings was her first book of English verse, Pieces her second.
