Art is versatile, and this dynamicity has bred starkly different forms, a few of which people are inclined to categorise as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Samantak Bhadra believes that the purpose of art may be fueling expression, but it comes with responsibility.
Samantak is a literary enthusiast whose poems and reviews have been published in more than 25 magazines and anthologies from across the world, like Rain Taxi, The Missing Slate, 40 Under 40, Recours au Poème, Knot Magazine, and Taj Mahal Review among others. He is also a TEDx speaker and has been a journalist, an entrepreneur, a software engineer, a soft skills trainer, a sales manager, and a CSR professional.
He has also been handling two poetry movements since 2014. He is the founder of theSound which conducts poetry and art events, awareness sessions and workshops.
