Critique by SB
By your good old editor! Few simple words about the works of my much cherished authors! So the critiques will be honest, short and sweet.
Atit- Past by Labanya- Haunting, beautiful and sad, it will linger in my mind for a few days with a pang.
Spiritual fragrance by Scott Hastie: priceless! It certainly is filled with spiritual fragrance, one of those poems that open that world for you.
EVM machines and Indian election by saptarchi: It seems too many people don’t trust EVM machine, I don’t trust anything electronic blindly. In a corrupt country like India it was a bad idea, can be rectified and should be! Ballot papers should be brought back.
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 13: Angels scared of day-dreamers, oops! I am still one! The description of the angels was an added bonus.
Vela Vela by Vasu Srinivasan translated by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: how do they do it? Ride a bicycle for hours like that? Boy!
Null dance by Troy David Loy: I wonder if Troy will further develop Meenakshi too, I have read a few pieces about her and enjoyed them.
You cannot grasp… by Dom Collucci: I wish I could say that I will love to let go all types of attachments! There are few that make life worth living, like attachment to the beautiful earth and its beauty.
Bitter Pill dose 41 by Bitter Pill: Press 4: The level to which Saffron Brigade has lowered Indian press it will never recover. No one will respect main stream media or trust Indian journalists.
Ganesha by Manju Balkrishna: Fabulous work of art. Manju is a very talented artist without a doubt.
The year that never was by Pat Ritters 3: Final piece of the chapter one of the novel ends with a very well penned train journey. You could almost take the ride with them.
I believe that will be it for my critique as an editor, you will have to read the rest in Ezine. Of course there is truckloads of more works there!
