A. K. CHOUDHARY: PHRASAL KING IN INDIAN ENGLISH VERSE

Dr. Ajay Kumar Chowdhary

Abstract


Arbind Kumar Choudhary is the undisputed phrasal king in the firmament of Indian English poetry. His phrasal fragrance that tickles the heart of the muselovers makes him a poet of high water mark in Indian Writing in English. There are a number of Indian critics who call him the Phrasal King in Indian English poetry. As Sarojini Naidu is known for her melodious song, Choudhary is recognised for the phrasal fragrance his verses exhume here and there. The phrasal fragrance that runs wild across his verses persuades a number of his verse-suitors to inhale its essence in all their conscience. The blending of three or more than three phrasal words in the quatrain justifies the crown of the Phrasal King in the firmament of English poetry in general and Indian English poetry in particular. Most of his verse-suitors have inhaled the phrasal fragrance of his verses in all their conscience. As a result they have become the suitors of the verses in general and his phrasal stanzas in particular. The junction of the phrasal words in the quatrain speaks volumes about his phrasal coronation in Indian English poetry.
