A note on ‘Ring of life’

Sukesh Shekar | Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Thanks for publishing the article I sent to you (“Ring of life,” Feb. 21). It was pointed out to me, and rightly so, that some of the poetic prose in my article was provided courtesy of Mumford and Sons. I was listening to them while penning my thoughts after the bout. I had a look at some of their lyrics after a student’s e-mail. I have subconsciously made use of their lyrics to describe my stream of consciousness in the article, the exactitude and context of which I cannot fully ascertain. I apologize that this realization wasn’t immediate, there was too much adrenaline in me at the time. I wish to suffix a note of courtesy to Mumford and Sons, and the Bengal Bouts for inspiration.
