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,
