And finally the Releasing Ceremony

                 Baptism, like this, is purely inexplicable...words fail...again dilemma time and Prufrockian diffidence...Amidst such an applause,I looked at myself... and asked who I am, Prufrock was still thinking in me but somebody got the vibes and answered " A Powerful Poet"(my first compliment in the festival), She was none other than a famous Bengali Poet, MandaKranta Sen, winner of National Ananda Puruskar and. She told me that she would translate my poems into Bangla.
Yes! the news is true(though I still feel it dreamy) -Yesterday(dated 13-03-10), My book was finally released in the "North East And Northern Poetry Festival,PAU by Dr.S.S.Noor,Vice - President of Delhi Sahitya Academy.
 Dr.Sylvanus Lamare, (a Great Scholar as well as a writer of many books on Khasi culture) was the first person to buy a copy of my book.. thanks a ton :). Sir! If ever you again, by chance, stumble upon my blog, Please, leave some comments.I will feel honored.
And to my Mamaji, Swarnjit Savi, a Great poet and Painter...

"Mamaji, I wish I had some words with which I could express my sense of gratitude,indebtedness as well as my happiness for Support you provided me right from the day One...I am proud to be your Niece."

Then, My Family that supported me every Moment of my life,bore everything so patiently with me... I love you all! 
And Finally, my Muse and the Inspiration who made me a poet ..

"Wah e diwangi -e-shonk, ke har dam mujhko
Aap jana Udhar, or Aap hi hairan hona "

Yeah, Still a reluctant poet, 
Navdeep Sihra

ਬਹੁਤ ਬਹੁਤ ਵਧਾਈ "ਸੁਰਖ ਡੁੰਘਾਈਆਂ ’ਚ" ਲਈ.....
ਇੱਕ ਸਾਲ ........... ਸੁਣਨ ਨੂੰ ਬਹੁਤ ਥੋੜ੍ਹਾ ਲਗਦੈ (ਲੰਬੀਆਂ ਉਮਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਸੰਦਰਭ ’ਚ)
365 ਦਿਨ..........ਬਹੁਤ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਨੇ (ਹਰ ਦਿਨ ਹੋਣ ਵਾਲ਼ੀਆਂ ਘਟਨਾਵਾਂ ਦੇ ਮੁੱਤਲਕ)
8760 ਘੰਟੇ.......... ਬਹੁਤ ਭਾਰੇ ਲੱਗਦੇ ਨੇ (ਉਸ ਇੱਕ ਘੰਟੇ ਦੇ ਮੁਕਾਬਲੇ ਜੋ ਇੰਤਜਾਰ ’ਚ ਲੰਘਦੈ.....ਮੈਨੂੰ ਪੁੱਛ ਜਾਂ ਆਪਣੀ DD ਨੂੰ)
....ਤੇ ਇੱਕ ਸਾਲ ’ਚ 31536000 ਪਲ.......... ਉਫ਼............ ਇੱਕ ਕਵੀ/ਕਵੀਤਰੀ ਲਈ ਹਰ ਲਮਹਾ ਬਹੁਤ ਕੀਮਤੀ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਏ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ ਹਰ ਪਲ ਸੋਚਾਂ ਦੇ ਸਮੁੰਦਰ ’ਚ ਸੁਚੇਤ ਹੋ ਕੇ ਗੋਤੇ ਲਾਉਂਦੇ ਰਹਿਣਾ........ਤਾਂ ਕਿ ਕਿਤੇ ਕੋਈ ਖਾਸ ਅਹਿਸਾਸ (ਜੋ ਆਮ ਆਦਮੀ ਲਈ ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਆਮ ਹੋਵੇ) ਕਲਮ ਦੀ ਛੋਹ ਤੋਂ ਬਿਨਾਂ ਨਾ ਰਹਿ ਜਾਵੇ............ ਦਿਲ ਦੀ ਕੋਈ ਅਜਿਹੀ ਭਾਵਨਾ .........ਕਿਤੇ ਕਾਗਜ਼ ਦਾ ਆਸ਼ੀਆਨਾ ਲੱਭਦੀ ਲੱਭਦੀ ਜ਼ਿਹਨ ਦੀ ਸਰਦਲ਼ ਤੇ ਆ ਕੇ ਹੀ ਨਾ ਗੁਆਚ ਜਾਵੇ............ਕਸ਼ਮ-ਕਸ਼ ਦੇ ਅਜਿਹੇ ਕਿੰਨੇ ਹੀ ਪਲਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਇੱਕ ਸ਼ਾਇਰਾ ਨੇ ਕਾਗਜ਼ਾਂ ਦਾ ਇੱਕ ਅਜਿਹਾ ਆਸ਼ੀਆਨਾ ਤਿਆਰ ਕਰਕੇ ਅਜਿਹੇ ਕਿੰਨੇ ਹੀ ਅਹਿਸਾਸਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਕਲਮਬੱਧ ਕੀਤਾ ਹੈ 
ਉਮੀਦ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਸਿਰਫ਼ ਇੱਕ ਸ਼ੁਰੂਆਤ ਹੈ 
ਵੈਸੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਅੰਗਰੇਜ਼ੀ ਬਹੁਤੀ ਵਧੀਆ ਨਹੀਂ ਪਰ blog ਤੋਂ ਪੜ੍ਹ ਕੇ ਥੋੜ੍ਹੀ ਜਿਹੀ ਸਮਝ ਤਾਂ ਆ ਹੀ ਗਈ..........
ਮੌਕਾ ਮਿਲ਼ਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਮੈਂ ਪੂਰੀ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਵੀ ਪੜ੍ਹ ਕੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਵਿਚਾਰ ਦੱਸਣ ਤੋਂ ਵੀ ਪਰਹੇਜ਼ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰਾਂਗਾ 
