selecting poems for including in this issue, I kept in mind
that the poems should be full of passion and sincerity devoid
of bombastic style, puerility and pedantic conceits. It will
be very useful for the authors to get inspiration from
Shakespeare's immortal works like are Macbeth, King Lear,
Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth
Night, As You Like It, The Comedy of Errors, Much Ado About
Nothing, Richard II, The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline. Ben Jonson
aptly admires the greatest genius in the following words:
of the age!
applause! delight! the wonder of our stage!
Shakespeare, rise; I will not lodge thee by
or Spenser, or bid Beaumont lie
little further to make thee a room.
issue not only includes some of the most admirable poems by
the contemporary writers, but also haiku, short stories, art
work, book reviews, articles about literature and, self
improvement, immortal quotes, startling literary facts, and
many other interesting features. Hope you might like this
latest edition of Taj Mahal Review.
including haiku, I have tried my best to include such haiku
that don't blindly adhere to the 5-7-5 pattern. Ban'ya
Natsuishi, the greatest modern haiku poet, aptly says that
muki haiku and non-seasonal poems reveal a new style of
expression in contemporary haiku.
was a day of great joy when Doc Drumheller from New Zealand
visited my residence. I along with Karunesh Kumar Agrawal met
him for the first time in 2009 in the 5th World Haiku
Association Conference and The Druskininkai Poetic Fall in
Lithuania, where he became the New Zealand Ambassador to the
Republic of Uzupis. It was a proud moment for me to release
his latest haiku collection In Transit. He is a marvelous poet
and an extraordinary creative artist. He recited some of his
best haiku at Cyberwit office. We discussed about the
increasing popularity of the haiku genre.
am highly thankful to my well-wishers and friends who provided
me their full cooperation and help to bring out Dec. 2011
issue of Taj Mahal Review. I am quite grateful to all
poets, haiku writers and creative artists included in this
latest issue for their warm support and help. This issue would
not have been possible without their kind cooperation.
