Raj Supe has worked across genres with relatively equal ease. He started as a poet and ended up as a spiritual seeker.
Big Bappa, a novella, was his first long short story and he published it more than two decades after it was written, “with its literary shortcomings intact, because it was my voice, unsophisticated perhaps, but mine.”
He translated several books, mostly on spirituality, such as Cloudburst of Thousand Suns, Jai Jai Ram Krishna Hari, The Eternal Festival and Rainbow at Noon a Gujarati Sahitya Akademi book that was listed on Crossword Vodafone Awards.
His anthology Hundreds of Shells from teachings of Swami Satyamitrananda Giri has become popular among the young readers.
His writings convey the passionate intensity of a seeker; the sincerity of one who hopes to bring about an ideal mix of traditional mythic imagery and the urgencies of post-modern life. In the words of a leading poet, ‘he has the anonymity of the saint-poet on the one hand and the self- expression of the modern writer on the other.’
He is the Editor of spirituality emagazine The Mother www.themotherdivine.com
