Dr. Amruta Nerurkar is a physiotherapist working in the area of Neuro-rehabilitation and an exponent of the Indian classical dance form Kathak. Neurological rehabilitation allows her the privilege of being privy to the very personal and rich processes of psycho-physical evolution that humans experience or/and essentially need to experience right from their intrauterine lives into the expanse of their respective life spans. Dance (in her case Kathak) has opened her to the multiple dimensions that exist to the human body and mind and to the huge number of stories that play themselves out within us while being anchored onto the rhythm of life. Writing brings credible structure to all of this and it is the author s way of reflecting back to herself in essence all that has materialised as physical forms. Being Radha reflects and celebrates the very legitimate self actualising need of the human spirit fuelled by its most trustworthy accompaniment..... love. Being Radha is a collection of 18 poems and the related essays based on phases that punctuate the inner journey of the character of Radha.... the woman who innocently and naturally embodied love in its myriad forms. Her inner life fledges out through events of reluctance, intense yearning for a sense of fulfilment, her act of taking the plunge to commune wholeheartedly with the object of her fascination, her realisation of a status where she is willing to proudly celebrate her man and her love, her moments of separation anxiety, the intense turmoil and self doubt that it precipitates, the gradual discovery of the need to keep her soul mate alive beyond the parameters of physical proximity , the realisation of the magnificence of her human medium and finally the attainment of a conscience that embraces nature in all its prosperity. The richness of the concept of Radha-Krishna is such that it transforms into a special theme privately and uniquely experienced by every individual ever touched by it.
