Literary Legend Speaks - Published in Contemporary Vibes - July - September 2010

SYED AMEERUDDIN - a living literary legend - a prolific perennial source of creative cascades in his unique style of poetics, prose, and criticism- revered and adored all over the world- especially academia and social-service sector, has been too kind enough to give a detailed interview to Anil K. Sharma- to reveal the intricacies of the complex journey of life spanning almost seven decades wherein from his childhood to the youthful days to the zenith of his life, a spectrum of cherished memorabilia of longings, struggles, suffocations- all mixed together in the human journey streaked with hurdles, handicaps and hard realism coupled with idealism, humanism, lamentations and struggling spirits, -all inflaming the torch of literature in the inequitable world of ruthless socio-economic disparities- present a scenario of the past, present and future.

Foreword

There can be no doubt that Dr. Syed Ameeruddin is one of the most widely known, most widely travelled, most widely published and most widely critiqued Indo-Anglian poets and the recipient of numerous awards. But the records of his various achievements and publications of the views of a wide spectrum of learned scholars about him and their profound assessment of his poetic works lie scattered over several newspaper articles and commentaries in various publications spanning a period of some decades, so that one does not get a comprehensive and complete picture of Ameeruddin, the poet and the man.
