Tu proverai sì come sa di sale
lo pane altrui, e come è duro calle
lo scendere e ‘l salir per l’altrui scale. 

Thou shalt prove how salt is the taste of another’s bread and how hard is the way up and down another man’s stairs.

-Dante

Welcome to Taj Mahal Review June 2014! No doubt, the TMR for several years has tried its best to promote contemporary creative poets and artists. This issue includes poems, haiku, short stories and artwork by both famous and unknown creative artists across the globe. I have always endeavored to select for TMR only those poems that reveal the poet’s passion for Truth and Beauty in an impassioned language.


Some of the poems included in this issue reveal poststructural attitude. We all know that structuralism was based on the main premise that the structure of human world can be well understood by the structure of language. But during 1960s, the post structural authors, philosophers raised doubts about the validity of the language itself to unravel the mysteries and obstinate questionings about our universe. Foucalt aptly remarked that god was crumbling under our feet. The fact is that The poststructural authors are attracted by themes like Marxism, feminism, Nihilism and anarchism.

It is very sad to know that two Nobel Laureates died recently. Doris Lessing, the British Nobel Laureate, famous for her immortal works “The Golden Notebook” and “The Grass is Singing”, died aged 94 on November 17, 2013. Her works are imperishable due to “skepticism, fire and visionary power.” Another tragedy occurred as the Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez, one of the greatest and unique contemporary writers, passed away on April 17, 2014 at the age of 87. His most famous novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude” (1967) sold more than 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. He always felt that being awarded Nobel prize would be a catastrophe because his private life would be severely invaded. I along with Karunesh Agarwal and Cyberwit staff express my deep condolence at this great loss to their families.

I am highly indebted to all creative artists and poets included in this edition of TMR. The fact is that without their generous support and kind cooperation this publication would never have been possible. Many sincere thanks again for their kind help.
