World Haiku Review August 2012: Got One Here

Its that time of the year again when the World Haiku Review comes out with an issue. There is again, some beautiful stuff out there. One of my entries has managed to make it in here, a bonus. Here are the links to the editorial page and the three pages of haiku.

Anyone wanting to read more haiku on WHR can search 'haiku' on the search box at the top left of this blog. You will find the links to the issues dating back from January 2011 to the present.

The Taj Mahal Experience: August 11th 2012

All one can say is, despite the conniving travel agents at Agra Cantt. railway station, the crunching discomfort of serpentine queues, the shabby arrangements, the urine-smelling interiors at one of the elegant entry gates, a sweat-stained two hour journey of 500 meters through the west gate and the apparent insensitivity to a national monument, the Taj Mahal at Agra is best experienced. Nothing man-made (I have seen yet) comes close to replicating the mystery and wisp-like beauty that nature pervades.
