    y separately published work icon Teesta Review : A Journal of Poetry Interliminal Encounters : Indian and Australian Writers in Po(i)etic Dialogue vol. 5 no. 2 November 2022 25715269 2022 periodical issue '‘Let us flow like the river’, I read frequently in the email signatures of my esteemed colleague and Editor-in-Chief of Teesta Journal, Jaydeep Sarangi. No matter how many times I see these words, I never tire of them, and never fail to feel myself smile as I read them. They evoke thought of the mighty Teesta River, which courses through such diverse terrains, feeding and connecting many otherwise very different people and cultures. The river as symbol says so much about what poetry at its best can be, and of the reasons why it matters. In multiple senses, poetry flows, and allows us to flow. It flows both from and towards – from experiences, emotions, thoughts, situations, responses, and often other poems; and towards new insights, connections, possibilities, and actions, including actions of inspiring or creating more poems.'
