Description

From the Jacket:

Child Even in Arms of Stone is an anthology of poems on and about children, poems that sing of lover for this "unattainable earth" as Milosz puts it. There are as many as 30 well-known poets of the world ranging from JoJo T. Boskovsky to Rabindranath Tagore, Kabir to Pablo Neruda and Li Po to W.B. Yeats besides a few tribal songmakers of India. Deep within every sensitive poet, every artist, a child is alive and we hear his voice, we see him play with words, colours and images. The poets speak about their own children or about children and childhood in general. In these poems celebrating the ineluctable childhood, children speaks of their dreams and their aspirations as in Tagore's poems. A child sends a loving invitation to a butterfly as in the Wordsworth poem. Children look at the world with their sense of wonder and awe. So do the poets look at childhood as do Lorca, Tanikawa or Lzet.

The poems presented in this anthology compel us to sit back and consider once again as to how to make this planet safe for children and hand it over to him.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
