Anjali Nerlekar's Bombay Modern is a detailed interpreting of Arun Kolatkar's canonical poetic works that relocates the style of poetry to the guts of either Indian literary modernist reviews and postcolonial Indian stories. Nerlekar indicates how a bilingual, materialist analyzing of Kolatkar's texts uncovers a uniquely resistant experience of the "local" that defies the monolinguistic cultural pressures of the post-1960 years and straddles the bounds of English and Marathi writing.

Bombay Modern uncovers another and provincial modernism via poetry, a style that's marginal to postcolonial stories, and during bilingual scholarship throughout English and Marathi texts, a technique that's at present peripheral at top to either modernist reports and postcolonial literary feedback in India. Eschewing any try and outline an overarching or common modernism, Bombay Modern delimits its sphere of analysis to "Bombay" and to the "post-1960" (the sathottari interval) in an try to learn at shut diversity the categorical approach within which this poetry redeployed the nearby, the nationwide, and the overseas to create a truly tangible but brief local.
