A Peacock is a beautiful bird that celebrates the advent of rain with a mesmerising dance. Like this gorgeous bird, Peacock & Gold Edition dances to the music of our poets, writers and artists. Interviews with wordsmiths, Kelli Russell Agodon & Kanwar Dinesh and artists Sangeeta Gupta & Babeesh Anela inspire. Segments on poetry, fiction, creative non Fiction make for great reading. Film and book reviews, podcasts and montage all add to this bubbling literary cauldron.
At the request of our poets, we have introduced a new segment, The Daily Verse'', where we upload poems every day of the week. Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of our poets, this segment is off to a running start.
Dear Readers & Viewers, find yourself a cosy nook and enjoy our June offering.
