Gautam Nadkarni (India)

Gautam Nadkarni is both poet and artist of his haiga. He prefers humorous senryu rather than demure haiku for his creations. He has 45 published haiga to his credit so far but this is his first ever submission to Daily Haiga. Nadkarni has been drawing cartoons since age 12 but when he discovered to his delight that his senryu could be married to his cartoons he got right down to his drawing board. He has won twice in the Jane Reichhold Memorial Haiga Competition— in 2017 and in 2019.
