VODKA BY THE VOLGA: A Duo of Duelling Dulcimers & Daggers is a chapbook of intense poems on Russian writers and literature and the country itself, not to mention their poetry, by two of the most noticed names in the world of Indian English poetry today, Dr Santosh Bakaya of Ballad of Bapu fame, and Dr Koshy AV whose co-authored poetry chapbook Wine-kissed Poems was an Amazon bestseller recently.

The poems contain a wide range of powerful emotions and refer or allude to the best in Russian poetry too, and is a must have for anyone who loves poetry. It is by turn historical, archetypal, emotional and philosophical and deeply revealing in its texture and feel of poetry that can affect the readers deeply, in that sense harking back to the Romantic.

The book of poems also has two excellent prose sections in a preface by Dr Bakaya and an afterword by Dr Koshy AV that are a delight to read, though from similar perceptions and persuasions, ideologically.

'A review of “Vodka by the Volga”'
I just finished reading a collection of poems, with a unique name, “Vodka by the Volga: A duo of duelling dulcimers and daggers.” When I got the book, I thought I’d read it in one go. But after I read a few poems, I closed the book, for I did not want it to end too soon. I took time, dipping myself bit by bit, into these lyrical expressions. This book has Russia written all over it and that is what attracted me to it, other than the fact that it was written by two eminent writers, Dr Santosh Bakaya and Dr Ampat Koshy. At the very outset of my review, let me tell you the book is exquisite- from its title to its poetic texture.
