“The world will little note nor long remember what we say here.”

Dear Friends,

I want to thank you all for your continuous support. I feel so happy to say my friend ‘Shiva’ who has surprised me with his highest orders and the great thing about it is that my book will be the inspiration for him to understand Hindi :D

Yes, I was so surprised when I came to know that he can read Hindi because its taught in school but doesn’t understand well…but he ordered 15 books and more in the process…!

Shiva, I personally owe you a lot …as you are helping the good cause behind this and I really salute for that.

“Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.” ~ Boris Pasternak

I also want to let you all know when I added my book to sell on eBay here in US – I accidentally added to the auction format and it went for bidding. I couldn’t withdraw as I can not do that. One of my friend 'Nissidhi' and “surprise, stranger" called ‘Save on Books’ they both were bidding and finally ‘Save on Books’ bought the book for $24.50.

Again, this came as a surprise to me, as I was trying to find out who is this :D?
Yes, I have often seen my dears give me surprises and this was another one ;)

Thank you to all my dears and yes, the book is on sale for people in India on eBay India.

“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” ~ Albert Pike

Your support and encouraging words have given me strength to work on my next book.
This time its not poetry and this will be in English ;) but my love for Hindi language will definitely translate this too.

Please be on my side….

Fizaa,

I got your book yesterday. I have read and scanned through more than 1/2 the poems. All the poems have captured your emotions beautifully and with a bang. I will mail you a detailed feedback soon.

This book of yours is an example for me to pursue your dreams with complete heart and the eventual realization of that. I am proud to have you as my friend.

Note: My hindi reading and understanding abilities are intact after these many years. The 2 urdu ones are short, sweet and the keys to the tough words were helpful:-)

Hi Dawn;
To remind you, I am Bluebirdy/Sheila from http://bluebirdyliving.blogspot.com who wrote the English poetry book "Dusk and Dawn" and wrote to you about it.
I just came from your other site, "Hi Let's Chai" and looked at "Singularity's" profile. http://hichai.ning.com/profile/singularity
This is a very famous man! His name is Ron Paul and he is running for USA President. Well he was until about 5 days ago, when he dropped his campaign. So either you have an imposter in your group, pretending to be Ron Paul, or you have a VERY FAMOUS man in your group! It would be wonderful if it was really Ron Paul! He is a VERY KIND Dr. He is a very honest man who wants all wars to stop. He would not fit into the corrupt government. If you want to learn more about Ron Paul, go to www.ronpaul2008.com . Is "Hi Let's Chai" only for Hindi poets? Maybe it is a 72 year old man who used Ron Paul's picture as his own, or it might be any person of any age pretending to be Ron Paul or a 72 year old man. On computer, who knows? People often pretend to be whoever they want.
It's nice to know someone who is also a poet on the other side of the world. Sometime we will have to share some of our poems with each other.
Bless you!
Sheila/Bluebirdy

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
