MAHALINGUM GOVENDER’S LATEST BOOK (article first published : 2005-03-19)

Durban poet Mahalingum Govender’s latest book. Poetic Whispers was recently launched by Minister of Education Ina Cronje at the Ocean Conference Centre.

This information was gleaned from a newspaper report by Farook Khan of The Mercury published on February 18, 2005.

One of six children, Mahalingum Govender was born in Pinetown to a family in the Indian business community. After school he worked in the family business before staring his own transport company. This is now run by his wife, Vinothavelli, allowing Mahalingum time to pursue his poetry.

“The book contains poems in honour of 28 freedom fighters: from Bhambata, who took on the English; to Nelson Mandela, who changed the course of South Africa’s history,” says Farook.

The poems deal with a wide variety of subjects and include sketches by Mahalingum Govender.
