Guillermo Rodríguez, an active promoter of Indo-Spanish cultural relations, is the founding director of Casa de la India, a pioneering cultural centre in Spain, which has become the model for India’s cultural diplomacy abroad. A passionate traveller, it was during an overland trip to India in the early 1990s that he chanced upon A.K. Ramanujan’s poetry and translations, an interest that evolved into a PhD. on the poet-scholar, obtained from the University of Kerala and University of Valladolid. He is the author of When Mirrors Are Windows. A View of A.K. Ramanujan’s Poetics (2016) and co-editor of Journeys. A Poet’s Diary by A.K. Ramanujan (2019).
