To the Editor

Dear Hassanal,

Have I written to thank you for sending me the new Shabdaguchha? Iíve had it on my desk for several days, dipping into its richness whenever possible. You have my best wishes for continued success. In its quiet way, it makes just the kind of positive international statement we need in these violent times.

With admiration,

Dear Hassanal,

I've forwarded your message to a fine poet & translator, Carolyne Wright, in the hope that she may want to work with you to bring the poem into English.

All best,

Dear Hassan Bhai,

It's [Swatantra Sonnet 153] a great poem! Thank you.
I received the current issue of Shabdaguchha recently. Your poem is the best (in my opinion) in this issue.
