To begin with the June 2021 edition of Taj Mahal Review, it is necessary to state that the journal provides immense aesthetic pleasure to all readers across the world. Its principle is : to publish only original poems, haiku, short story, critical reviews, etc. It is quite disappointing to point out so many deaths due to a global outbreak of the pandemic coronavirus. “The most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of all coronaviruses is estimated to have existed as recently as 8000 BCE, although some models place the common ancestor as far back as 55 million years or more.” No doubt, destruction of our ecosystems is quite responsible for the outbreak of infectious diseases. Various academic researches have shown that deforestation and loss of wild life lead to several pandemics. Wordsworth is quite right in lamenting the fact that we are now strangers to “Spontaneous wisdom breathed by health”. This is quite painful and bitterly disappointing to see such a large number of coronavirus victims from all walks of life across the world. I and Karunesh Kumar Agarwal along with all staff members pray that God may grant peace and consolation to all bereaved families. It is my humble duty to thank all poets and short story writers whose best writings are published in this latest TMR edition. I am highly indebted and grateful to all international authors for their kind cooperation and help to make publication of the June 2021 issue of Taj Mahal Review possible.
