To the Editor

Since it was impossible for me to attend the Festival, I especially appreciated Jahed Ahmed’s vivid review of the event.  Hassanal Abdullah continues to pursue and develop his literary dreams as he cultivates a place for Shabdaguchha and Bengali poetry on the New York poetry scene.  Long may he thrive!  Stanley H. Barkan, poet and publisher of Cross-Cultural Communications, remains a faithful friend. With warmest congratulations on this accomplishment,

Greetings Hassanal,  
It was a very interesting event you hosted on Saturday in honor of the Bengali New Year! I only wish I could have understood some of the poetry read aloud.

Your wife is a sensitive colorful poet in her own right. I enjoyed her reading.   

Cheers and all good wishes,

Mary Beth Shanahan
