Warm greetings. Like the earlier issues, this latest edition of Taj Mahal Review is an humble attempt to publish genuine creative writings by authors across the globe. I have done my best to ascertain that the June 2022 edition contains only those authors who cater to the creative appetite of readers all over the world.
This latest issue of TMR includes modern and postmodern poems, haiku by international poets, book reviews and many other interesting features. Some of the poems included in this latest edition are romantic in method and style, but it is necessary to add that these poets find it difficult to altogether escape troubled spirit.
The fact is that it is not always possible for a creative artist to write about happier aspects of life. The opening line of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice reveals Antonio’s mysterious melancholy: “In sooth, I know now not why I am so sad.”
Matthew Arnold’s poem The Scholar Gipsy (1853) reveals in the following immortal lines:
It is very sad to write about death of Ambassador Moshé Liba, retired diplomat, university professor, author and artist. I along with Karunesh Kumar Agarwal express deep condolence to the bereaved family. A highly remarkable fact about him is his intense love for writing poems and reflective essays. He is an immortal poet. In his works, poetry attains its highest power, revealing his individual style and mastery of the English language.
Congratulations to Zanzibar-born novelist Abdulrazak Gurnah who won the 2021 Nobel Prize in literature "For his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents”.
This is my duty to express my thanks and gratitude to all authors published in June 2022 edition of TMR. I must add that without their kind help this publication would not have been possible. Best Wishes
