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.
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
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
