Taj Mahal Review Dec 06 by

by Maria Cristina Azcona

Literary Fiction

An International Journal
Devoted To Arts, Literature, Poetry And Culture




Welcome to the Taj December 2006! The aim of Taj is to promote Art and Poetry for Peace & Brotherhood across diverse nations. This issue contains an extensive selection of most notable artwork, poems and short stories created by artists from all over the world. The artists whose works appear in Taj are selected because of their innovative style, and their faith in limitless freedom of expression  devoid of superfluous ornamentation, empty verbiage and hollow generalities. The most important thing for a creative artist is to posses some inward Platonic reality to face the dark unspirituality and ‘homelessness’ of the postmodern ethos. The most obvious and inescapable aspect of  the poems, artwork and short stories included in this issue is to convey the idea that there are as diverse ways of creative expression as there are individualities.

Praise For Taj Mahal Review

Yes, I did receive your wonderful publication "Taj Mahal Review" and am enjoying the readings. Forgive me for not responding sooner as I have broken my leg and many things have to be put on hold. I wish, also, to thank you for the lovely card with message you enclosed. Best wishes,

Mary, CA, USA

I am writing to inquire as to whether you have received and understood my e-mails (dated the 6th of January) regarding the cover page and manuscript correction of my book manuscript Collected Poems and Short Stories of Adam Donaldson Powell. I also would like to know if you can tell me when I can expect to receive the final proofs in the mail, and subsequent publication date. I have now had a chance to take a closer look at some of Cyberwit’s previous publications (Explorers: A Collection of Contemporary Literature, Taj Mahal Review vol. 3 number 2 and Captured Images), and wish to commend you on the quality of your work. I have shared information regarding Cyberwit with several talented writer friends here in Norway, who are also excited to see the final book and who may become future Cyberwit publication contributors/customers.

Adam Donaldson Powell, Oslo, Norway

Yes, I received Taj Mahal Review and thank you. It is a lovely issue as usual and I enjoy it very much. Best wishes to you and everybody at Taj Mahal for this year 2005.

Eric Tessier, Les Lilas, France

Thank you so much for your Christmas Greeting and the books I ordered, which arrived Friday, January 7th, 2005. I am very impressed with the Taj Mahal Review and Explorers. I am a member of the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto, an important historical organization, and with your encouragement, made my poetical performing debut there a few months ago. There is a Poetry Table, I have shown your books to other poets, they were very interested, and impressed, to say the least. Your anthologies and the Taj Mahal Review are so very well done - in the editing - binding, and printing, presentation. Your philosophy, depth of knowledge, commitment, are noble and admirable. Warm regards,

Barbara Elizabeth Mercer, CPA, Toronto, Canada

Thanks so much for using 2 of my poems in your newest Taj Mahal Review. I’m always pleased and honored to be in your lovely journals and anthologies. All good wishes to you for the New Year.

Patricia Wellingham-Jones, CA, USA


It’s quite good as usual, too. Hope your holidays were grand & that you have not been affected by the disastrous tsunami. We talk of nothing else here and mourn for the losses. Very best regards,

Pamela, OH, USA

We were plagued with plumbing problems throughout the Christmas season and it took two weeks to get them all repaired. Of course, it was a minor thing compared to the tsunami. All of those poor people with all that trauma! I am writing a poem about it.

Floriana, OH, USA

Thank you for sending me the wonder volume of the Taj Mahal Review, thank you for incorporating my poetry amongst such distinguished and talented writers ..... Your publication is always appreciated

Andy, London, UK

Just thought you would like to know I got the Taj Mahal books today via Air Mail.. Thank you for the extra one.. These books are such wonderful keepsakes for my family.. All my grand kids are in high school and in college and they bring them to school.. They are proud of their Gramma. It’s also great having a very good friend from Rose Marie Steetrer’s poems in your books.. She is a very good poet and very popular on Starlite. Hope you all have a great 2005

Del, WIsconsin, USA

I thoroughly am enjoying reading the stories/poems, (content). Also, I am honored that my poem, A CHANGE OF HEART, has been published in it and I wish to thank you. I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas-a safe holiday season-and looking forward to the best New Year to come for 2005. Again, thank you with all my heart!

Dana Kent Gallup, TX, USA

I received the Taj Mahal Review just in time for giving away as a perfect New Year gift to friends. The cover design of the journal is artistic and elegant in a simple way. The predominantly white colour with the picture of the Taj Mahal is, quite by accident, a fitting tribute to the monument in its 350th anniversary. You have put together a collection of poetry and stories covering a wide spectrum, which gives a panoramic glimpse of literature and culture of the entire world. Your efforts are truly laudable. I am filled with pride and humility for my modest participation in this collection, along with the authors of immense caliber and reputation. I wish you and your team every success and bright publishing years ahead.

Surendra Mohanty, UAE

It arrived in my mailbox today. A terrific way to start the new year! Hope I have your email address right. Hope too that your countrymen have a swift recovery from the tsunami that has made the news of late. I think of my faraway pen pals in moments such as this! Peace and good tidings.

W S Mayo, MD, USA

… thanks for the additional copy and book by Robert Wilson, "I See goddesses" Finally, the Christmas wish on the back of the waterfall. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and that it is a Happy New Year. Also, I hope that you did not lose friends or relatives in the tsunami from the earthquake in Sumatra. This tsunami is one of the greatest tragedies of our generation..

Buck Locke, MA, USA

Dear Dr. Kumar

Very nice timing! I received my copy of the Taj Mahal Review yesterday (17th July) and have been reading it since then. A very diverse and high quality anthology of works, I am most impressed and thoroughly enjoying reading it. Keep up the great work!! I wonder if you would be so kind as to forward my congratulations on a lovely collection of poetry to author Mariet van Knippenberg whose book A pebble Washed Ashore was included with the Review? Thank you in advance. Again keep up the good work Cyberwit!!

Alan McGourlay, Scotland, UK

Thank you, yes I received the copies of the Review. Very kind of you to inquire.

Tony Donovan, WI, USA

It is I that would like to thank you folks, you do such a wonderful job, and give so much good to the world, and I am sure for love, towards all mankind. Your books are a treasure and a pleasure that I will hold dear for all of my life and then pass them on to my children, and hopefully theirs, you all deserver so much more for your efforts. And for giving some of us an opportunity to give to life what we can, thank you.

Nyal Thomas, OR, USA

I find myself deeply impressed by your work in putting together such a classy journal. I received the book today and I was pleasantly surprised. I haven’t read any of the works yet but I expect to have many hours of pleasure as I go through every page. I did read the letter from the editor. Its message made me feel proud to be a part of your work. I share your strong conviction of helping the art of poetry thrive in the world. Poetry is so personal and brings together so many emotions that it is a true privilege to share it and hope it makes a difference. Please continue the wonderful work you’re doing. With sincere gratitude.
