Welcome to Taj Mahal Review June 2013! This multicultural issue reveals a comprehensive collection of poems, short stories, haiku, book review and artwork by creative artists across the globe reaching a worldwide audience. I trust that these poems will move our heart and soul due to sharpened sensibilities and heightened imaginative feeling. Several poets seem to have liberated poetry from the shackles of classical deception and romantic waywardness.
In this latest issue of Taj I have included many haiku poets. The haiku in this edition, the most popular genre in the cotemporary world, show a new experience of a familiar situation. Haiku experience is intuitive, not intellectual. “There is no subject whatever that is not fit for haiku (Basho)”. We need to write fresh and exciting haiku, moving beyond restricted theme of kigo to interact with modern sensibility.
I along with Karunesh Agarwal and Cyberwit staff offer my deep condolence at the sad death of Albert Russo’s mother. A very admirable and memorable fact is that she had a deep passion for reading poetry. We pray to God to grant peace to the bereaved family.
It was very shocking to know that Oklahoma tornado killed at least 51 people including 20 children. I express my deep condolence at this monster tornado devastation to the families suffering this great loss.
I am full of deep gratitude to all the creative artists whose help and kindness greatly inspired me in this work of editing ad selecting. There is no doubt that I look forward to receiving your cooperation in the future issues of Taj and thank you again.
