Following the convening of Hong Kong International Poetry Nights 2011, Words & the World is a collection of selected works by some of the most internationally acclaimed poets today. The poem of "Short Prayer" by Vivek Narayanan (India) is finest contemporary poetry in trilingual or bilingual presentation.

Vivek Narayanan (India) was born in Ranchi, India in 1972 to Tamil-speaking parents. He has lived, worked and studied in a number of countries, including Zambia, India, South Africa, and the U.S. His books of poetry include Universal Beach (2006) and the forthcoming Mr. Subramanian; his poetry and prose can be found widely online and in print, including in some recent anthologies like The Bloodaxe Book of Contemporary Indian Poetry (Bloodaxe, 2008), and Language for a New Century: Contemporary Poetry from the Middle East, Asia, and Beyond (W.W.

In addition to publishing, Narayanan also explores different approaches to reading and performing; he has tried to fuse poetry with other forms in a series of collaborations, experimenting with technology, physical space, movement, site-specific poetry and audience interaction. Narayanan is currently based in New Delhi, where he is Co-Editor for the India-based international journal and literary organisation Almost Island.
