"It is Dr Vivekanand Jha’s privilege and enlightened vision to have gathered under two covers poets hailing from the four corners of the world.What we have here is a rainbow of hues and perfumes, of sounds and voices, which form a musical variety with which everybody can identify.He and she can change the partition to suit their mood or desire at any given moment. In this magnificent anthology you will have a taste of a gourmet hors d’oeuvre of verses, which I believe will whet your appetite and prod you to delve into the magic of Poetry.Savor it as you savor the delicacies of ‘slow cuisine’. Bon appétit!"

Well-meaning international attempts like this would, in whatever little measure, slowly and steadily contribute to a general détente, harmonise the zeitgeist and help in inculcating a weltanschauung. After all, the primary purpose of poesy or creative literature is universal weal – Viswa-sreyah-kavyam, according to the ancient seers of Indian poetics.”
