Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||
- abhang of Tukaram Wolhoba Ambile of Dehu

Time for some self-promotion

This thing above is the cover of my latest book. Um, well, okay, not entirely my book. Its mine by about 1/66th or so. Because of your truly being one of thirty-three poets whose poems are in the book, ably complemented (and complimented) by illustrations by thirty-three artists.

It's been out since February 2011, but those who know me will expect me to update it several months later. So I'm being early (beating expectations) by lagging by just a month.

A sneak peak into some of the images (filched from the official Madness Mandali blog):

I recommend that you buy the book. Encourage a few poets and artists getting by on meagre incomes. The book might not be visible in bookstores, since this is the 21st century. You'll have to buy them online, and you can do that at these two stores:

Dogears Etc.
A1 Books India

Some more stuff.
