As an elderly member of many poetry sites I had

always maintained,

Read poems of others and also be read.

In most of our poetry sites we have more

writers than reader!

Just as in Life there are few listeners and more


When someone reads my poem I always do


Two hands are required even for a handshake!

From Raj Nandy now on seventy three!

Many of my popular and interesting poems are

to be found on the poetry site - 'Hello Poetry'!

Do have a look there if you don't believe me!

There is no provision to cut and paste here

most unfortunately! - Raj, 21 July 2017

    Point well taken, Raj! Thanks for this reminder.

    Dear dear long-time friend - your poetry and research prior to writing is second to none - I too am able to cut and paste poetry here from my own private lists and hope you can find you do the same - the sheer work put into every one of your pieces is worth many more readers worldwide - wishing you too best of success with your books dear Raj.


      Thanks for the reply FAY! Readers don't have patience for long informative composition these days,
      and want to read Haiku instead! Therefore I post them on 'Hello Poetry' site where I have a dozen interested readers still ! Best Wishes, - Raj, New Delhi.
