A. K. Ramanujan Poems! A.K. RAMANUJAN (1929-1993), Indo-American*
(Ramanujan would remark to friends that he was the hyphen between Indo-American)
“You want self-knowledge? You should come to America.
Just as the Mahatma had to go to jail and sit behind bars
to write his autobiography.
Or Nehru had to go to England to discover India. Things are clear
only when looked at from a distance.”
