Nibedita Phukan born in a small town called Moranhat in the district of Sibsagar, Assam. She has been regularly contributing to all the major Assamese literary magazines. Her first collection of poetry ‘Nachoni Parda’ was published in 2015. With individualistic sensibilities, the poet plays with the readers’ mind. She seeks realities in people’s unlived lives, unsaid things, half-real imagery and the interplay of disparate images. She did her masters in Geography from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Currently, she is working as a Senior Programme Manager at Development Alternatives, an NGO working towards sustainable development. She grew up in the mystical land of Assam and she finds everything lyrical there. The smell of fresh tea leaves, the ever flowing river, the sound of cicadas from the deep forest in the dark, the fire flies—they mesmerise her so much that they have become the source of her inspiration and words of her poetry.

To light or darkness... more »

Things I meant to say as also not to
Holding close matters where the past and the future
Did come into sight and did not
I wait... more »
