He has to his credit a rich oeuvre comprising remarkably diverse range of discipline such as literature, psychology, folklore, myths, Indian ethos, religion, Buddhism, Indian spiritual systems and traditions etc. He continues to make complex areas and issues accessible and comprehensible to contemporary readers. Besides, he is a poet extraordinary, having written more than thirty volumes of poems and still going strong and vibrant.
Having taught and guided programmes and projects in various capacities in India and the U.S.A. Ranchan served for long years as Professor and Chairperson, Department of English, Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla.

Imbued with insights drawn from modern psychology, Tibetan-Buddhism, Vedic studies, therapy, inter religious discourse and the deepest wellsprings of a thinking heart, Corpus Callosum written in epic form becomes an evolutionary scale for humans, a methodology for walking the spiritual path. It shows a way to coalesce immanent and transcendent, human and sublime, desire and illumination.
Corpus Callosum goes beyond Jung’s quatrenio and integrates the Buddhist solution to the modern suffering of alienation and anomie by contextualizing Self, not to simply erase it – a vision remarkably consonant with trends toward holism in Western thought that go beyond psychology and uses meditation to unclog the Corpus Callosum to provide new insights into the development of creativity and healing the ills of society as well as to guide stress-stricken people in modern times.

Dr. Nandini Sahu is a renowned Indian English poet and a creative writer of international repute. She has been widely published in Asia, Africa, Europe and the USA. A double gold medalist in English literature, the award winner of All India Poetry Contest and the Shiksha Ratna Purashkar, she is the author/editor of eight books entitled “The Other Voice”(a poetry collection), “Recollection as Redemption”, “Post-Modernist Delegation to English Language Teaching”, “The Silence”(a poetry collection),“The Post Colonial Space: Writing the Self and the Nation”,“Silver Poems on My Lips”(a poetry collection), Folklore and the Alternative Modernities (Vol. I and II) published from New Delhi. Presently, she teaches at Indira Gandhi National Open University [IGNOU], New Delhi, as an Associate Professor of English. Dr. Sahu has designed academic programmes/courses on Folklore and Culture Studies, Children’s Literature and American Literature for IGNOU. Her areas of research interest cover Indian Literature, New Literatures, Folklore and Culture Studies, American Literature, Children’s Literature and Critical Theory. She is the Chief Editor/Founder Editor of the bi-annual, refereed journal, Interdisciplinary Journal of Literature and Language (IJLL).

Nandini Sahu’s poetic oeuvre is marked by strident forays into simultaneous worlds of the physical and the metaphysical. She merges with ease and aplomb the realities and allegories of life into lucid poetic tales, making a niche for herself within the ever expanding canons of Indian English poetry. Nandini’s eco-feminist creed imbues her poetry with truthful vigour, augmented by a constellation of memorable images, set against the canvas of an undiluted Nature that suffuses her mindscape. In this collection which was envisaged as the lyrical biography of a woman, Sahu’s poetic personae has delved deep into the recesses of one thoroughly bred on the nuances of metropolitan literature, yet never having lost sight of her roots. The title poem is a testimony to her empathy with the subaltern. Sukamaa is Nandini’s folklore and the poem is an outcome of her concern for the ‘other’ – the rural, poor tribal woman Sukamaa who is evenly poised between oblivion, nostalgia and an ever hovering presence that impels the poet to retrace her contours. Thus, Nandini’s fourth poetry collection, Sukamaa and Other Poems, is her tribute to the marginal. Most poems in this volume are the utterance of a revolutionary zeal to straighten out the record between the less and the more fortunate – thereby to set up an inclusive standpoint within the matrix of a complex identity politics.
