I really enjoyed the interview with Dhirendra Kumar Shah, as well as his fine poem, "Stairway Companion." It's so great to have access to Indian and Nepalese poetry. Kudos to you, Robert, for bringing this to us on TPT.

I love Kumar Shah's description of poetry as "a personal confession — an urgency to explode and emerge in words." Confession, change, emergence — is it any wonder that poetry is the only church in which many of us can find spiritual comfort?

Yes, I really enjoyed the interview too, George. I'm keenly seeking more contributors from places other than the UK and USA.
