Synopsis: This collection of poems tells the story of Yashodhara, the wife of Gautama. Legend is that Gautama, the would-be Buddha, was born in the 6th century BC as the son of the king of a small warrior tribe of the Sakyas based in the principality of Kapilavastu in south-western Nepal. At the age of 29, Gautama left his palace, his wife, and his newly born son Rahul, to search of love, peace and salvation. The poems relate the story of Yashodhara in a poetic form that was popular in ancient and medieval Indian, Sanskrit and non-Sanskrit literatures. The season-poems follow a strict poetic structure and represent the voice of Yashodhara; the longer narrative poems that interject the season-poems are written in the voice of a contemporary narrator.

Review: "Yashodhara: Six Seasons Without You is a book that will charm you with its lucid and pungent distillations of desire, longing, and loss. In his own distinctive images and structures, Subhash Jaireth addresses notions of vulnerability in the face of time and change, and also the possibilities of joy."
