Taj Mahal Review published by Cyberwit.net is devoted to the cause of poetry so that our planet may be a better place to live in. What the Journal asks the poet is to be stimulated and moved by the visual and the aural imagery. The poems should reveal the remarkable variety of life, and a faith in life, blended by a healthy scepticism. The critical articles and essays should exhibit the post-modern trends, without obscurity, artificiality and violation of laws of criticism. Taj Mahal Review does not accept compositions founded on violent self-pity, or feelings of egocentricity. Poems, essays, literary articles, short stories, and book reviews are invited for publication in the International Journal Taj Mahal Review, published in June and December annually..
