I wrote Poetry on Mother Ganga, Mother Earth, Mother Nature and our role, Hopes, Peace and Humanity, Fading Human relations etc. After ruuning for publishers for 1 year I have decided to publish it on my own as I am in touch with my friends, students and few literature lovers, All big Publishers do not recognise a new entry, middle line publishers ask for money to publish it and they intend to through the complete printing copies on us to market it. The values are going down. But Hopes are still on......

It is fun not to get published for poetry. For then the poet reaches a higher state of consciousness.

Publishers are commercial people, can they undertake risks when they remain unsure of what the publish.

I place a poem and doubt if, except for a few, anyone would want to relate with these emotions and thoughts passed on by its writer.


Lovers

The shadow walks to highlight her form
As broken sun lights up her naked charm
To seize those figurative curves,
I watch her lewd flanks that never move
But in her silence she speaks to me
Of her joy and my judgmental decree,
Uninhibited moments of longing
Breaking each lover's spell that binds her
Within a painters stroke on canvas
For she actually comes to haunt
My very existence with beauty
And love which never truly existed.

Could I be her lover and not touch:
Those gold hairs she lovingly displays.

Let poetry be a joy for a writer when he or she does not publish it in a book form.

A few wards about the poet

Mr. Harihar Lahari saw the light of the day on September 27, 1921 on the sacred sail of Malwa in Indore Madhya Pradesh. He brought up in Vaidic culture and completed his study in Holkar Collage and Christian Collage Indore Madhya Pradesh.
Mr. Harihar Lahari is a veteran Journalist of India and worked as editor or Jt. editor with a many Hindi and English news papers of India.
He has published one book of Hindi poems entitled ‘Jeevan Ke Do Sunder Kshana’, Second by- lingual story book Sahaj Prakriti or ‘Nature As Such’, third book of English stories is published recently by the name - ‘The Divine Dog’.

The concerned poem ‘Jaya Bangla Jaya Swadesh’ was written by Mr. Hrihar Lahari during the libration war of Bangla Desh. He composed it reading the reports of the war in news papers. He is an educationist. He has been social reformer and political worker too.

Summary of poem ‘Jaya Bangla Jaya Swadesh’

Poet Hrihar Lahri composed this verse when the Bangla Libration Movement had been on under the leadership of Mujeeb Urrahman.
It has been so picturesque that it has been appreciated by all and sundry.
Prime Minister Indira Ghandi’s role has not only been graphic but also most admirable. She was the lone fighter on behalf of the freedom fighters of Eastern Pakistan. It was the miraculous victory for India. The aftermath might have been injurious to the broad minded Indian fraternity with the Bangla Desh.
This is rhythmic heroic couplet poetry. I may quote here a few stanzas of the poem for your pleasure…….

Stanza No (1)
Like Phoenix is Bangla born out of her own ashes
Manure for growth of a loving human generation is made of her bleeding gushes.
Two-nation theory has been thrown out of fashion
Humanity rejoices celebrating the birth of a nation.

Stanza No (5)
Serpents hissed ‘in’ when smiled this pompous man of gun
Urges of his subjects-his people, he did always shun.
On his neighbour-Bharat ever he threw bucketful abuse,
In which pastime did this head of the holy land amuse.

Stanza No (14)
Three millions they killed her daughters and sons
They thrashed teachers, devoted monks and nuns,
Churches were burnt, mosques marauded
And god’s name often these rascals applauded.

Stanza No (17)
Millions walked out of their ancestral homes
They swam over ocean and rivers full of rising foams,
Leaving their all they came as tortured paupers
They had no clothes on their bodies, in hand no coppers.

Stanza No (110)
In the memory of our Jawans our heads do we bow
Who smilingly caressed death in the deadly row,
They were Mother’s duteous sons whom nothing could affright.
They lived nobly and died fearlessly for what was upright.

If you agree to publish ‘Jaya Bangla Jaya Swadesh’, kindly apprise us of your terms and conditions.
Thanking you, sincerely yours,

poetry in India is long dead. all that needs to be done is to write an worthy epitaph in its memory. publishing industry is no longer spurned by ethics but on saleability. what globalization has done is to efficiently confuse the 'value' of something with' price'. lets write for the writing's sake and let us hope our verses to outlive their commerce..
