This selection is a small sample of all I have written, but they are the most self-contained in terms of vision. I usually write on the run and often illegibly and although I have tried to keep my writings intact, it will take me a few more years to gather what I have written during the seven years since the first book, as well as to channel the experiences of those years, from the flood into a form. These poems were written in the last three years of college and the months that followed graduation.

Ramblings represents the images that are constantly forming in a very young mind as the mind is transforming on approaching youth. Our poet Seema is a Bengali girl who lives and studies abroad and responds to distant events as they touch her through the visual media. She pens down her feelings of fear and apprehension that surrounds the child in today's world-of starvation and squalor in Africa, the difficulties of putting together a nuclear tests ban treaty and of AIDS. Seema also paints pictures of hope, her dreams and fantasies.

New Delhi in the mid-1950s forms Raana Haider’s first recollection of India. She accompanied her diplomat father on his posting to New Delhi. Some fifty years later, she was once again living in New Delhi – this time accompanying her diplomat husband. India: Beyond the Taj and the Raj is the account of the author’s travel across the complex tapestry that is India – underlined with historical and literary narratives by generations of writers on India. Vestiges of the Mughal legacy crowned by the Taj Mahal are relived, as are remnants of the Raj.

In this exciting new collection of poetry and prose, The Logopathic Reviewer's Song, Kaiser haq demonstrates  his ability to mould the English language into strange and beautiful forms that reflect his - distinctive vision of life —at once ironic, quirky, zany, and rich in emotional undertones and intellectual implications. With increasing exuberance, he explores varieties of free verse, experiments with prose poetry and aphorisms, and for good measure dips into the Rich Fund folk tales.

Hopeful/y the Pomegranate contains a small selection of Syed Najmuddin Hashim’s poems, ranging over four decades. From the deeply felt emotion of personal poems to the controlled anger of “political” ones, the poems reveal a man who at all times thought and felt intensely. Written in English, the poems are nevertheless rooted in Bangladesh even as they suggest a man who believed that he shared a common heritage with the rest of the world.

Syed Waliuliah’s Chander Amabasya (1964), rendered by Afia Dii as Night of No Moon, narrates the story of a young man whose world of innocent dreams collapses when he is forced to enter the world of experience. Arif Ali, a young man of twenty-four, has come from a village to work in a primary school in a small mofussil town. One dark night he stumbles upon the dead body of a murdered woman. His romantic idealism and his love of life keep him from acknowledging stark reality and he even thinks of forgiving the murderer whom he knows.
