VOL. 16 NUMBER 2 DEC 2017 (32nd Issue)
- Edited By : Dr. Santosh Kumar Binding: PB Publisher : Cyberwit
The December 2017 issue of the Taj Mahal Review aims to present some of the best contemporary poets across the world, richly gifted with an impressive scholarship and intense imagination. This latest edition of Cyberwit’s international journal full of the exuberance of rich poetic expression and imagination, the charm and richness of images in the included haiku, shows immense variety with publishing short stories, haiku by the poets across the globe, artwork, book reviews and many other interesting features. It is necessary to reveal that though we receive a large number of poems, short stories and haiku from across the globe, I always try to do my best in selecting and including only those compositions, artwork, short stories and poems that are full of insight and valuable contribution to the world of literature and arts. I trust that you will enjoy these poems, short stories and haiku. The most important criterion for including the creative artists and poets in the Taj Mahal Review is their chief endeavor to create and invent new and original writings. This has certainly enhanced the prestige of the international journal TMR. The poems and haiku included in this latest TMR reveal ‘the inner core’ of the poets’ profound emotions. M'Dermaid aptly comments: “Poetry lies hid within the inner core of man's thoughts and feelings and affections. It pervades the glorious universe in which the Almighty has placed him. It shines forth from the starry heavens, and from the deep blue vault of the summer sky. It lurks amid the green leaves of the groves, and gushes forth in the "wood notes wild" of their sweet songsters. It sparkles and plays in the flickering eddies of the stream.” Congratulations to Kazuo Ishiguro who won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature. The British writer, famous across the globe for his novels The Buried Giant, Never Let Me Go, and The Remains of the Day, “has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of the world.”I am full of profound gratitude to all the creative artists whose abundant help and cooperation highly 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. Thanks again for your tremendous support, help and cooperation.
