Dr. Dwarika describes himself as a “teacher by profession and a poet at heart”, as he has been writing poems since the age of nine. For the last few years, he has also been taking part in Kavi-Sammelans and reciting his poems on radio. His verse has also been published in multiple publications and his maiden book on poetry, Ummeedon Ke Pankh (Wings of Hope) was published in 2022, and was honored by the Jaipur Literary Association.

Also fond of acting and podcasting, Dr. Dwarika’s maiden short film, Lifaafe (Envelopes) was shown at Singapore last year. He is currently working on a  documentary and is also associated with the Kolkata-based literary organization, Neelambar.

Dr. Dwarika’s tastes in poetry veer towards interesting and frequently abstract word-play, liberal use of English words written in Hindi, and incisive social comments, as in his poem, Kaali nadi, in which he writes about the all-absorbing river next to a classically polluted city, using vivid imagery.

Born in Uttarakhand and brought up in Rajasthan, Dr. Dwarka has done his Ph. D. (Doctorate) from Gujarat and is currently Vice-Chancellor of the R.V. University in Bangalore.
