Your article on Adil Jussawalla The Missing Man of Indian English Poetry is a storehouse of information on the journalist poet who had been absent for so long which but many know it not and many will benefit from. I think nobody has written. it is such a great piece of criticism, laying it bare many an aspect of modern poetry, not known to us, lying hidden from us. That is why I am telephoning you at half past twelve of the midnight. I liked it very much and wonder how you could have. You language is very beautiful; you have a command over line and length. I could not edit; drop a single line from your paper. Such is the charm of your writing. Spell-bound by your powerful language, I finished your reading and as such had been the impact that I thought of contacting you personally. It has given so much ideas, thoughts and views and feel benefited from. Why do you keep yourself in hide when many expose themselves today? The mediocre writers are in light today, but you are so shy of and covert; an introvert personality, but when there is quality in you, why not to show it? Your humility is is your property which many have failed ti understand it. This is not a constraint but an asset. The Dark Daughter is a landmark of your literary activity; the lighthouse of your poetry, whose mythical texture many may not understand it so easily. It is the beauty of your poetry. - - P.K.Majumder

I cannot call myself a poet, I can just say, I too write, but cannot myself a poet, as because I know it, I am not, nor have I been able to do it.

Dear Dr. Dubey Indian English poet, Indian English poetry, and Indian English criticism -all get their deserved due from the poet's fair pen. There are poems on sundry subjects but his fecund imagination makes them interesting. In 'Confessional Poetry', the modern woman comes under scrutiny for her relationship stories. Then follows very fine division of poetry. In 'Value/What After Me? ', the poet conjectures about his departure from the scene of life. He ruminates about maya which manifests it self in worldly relations and worldly objects. 'Will The World End Soon? ' Voices your consternation about the inevitable end of this world which is perhaps at hand. 'Marrying For The Second Time' hints at the gnawing guilt of the middle-aged man who is torn between his love for his youthful second wife and his neglected moral duty towards his ''son and the daughter/ from his first wife''. In 'Life', the poet looks at the balance sheet of his gains and losses without complaining about the net out come. In 'Mr. Drunkard' the poet advises him to occasionally take wine but not let wine take him. He recommends sipping but not gulping. He is also for a standard wine and not the hooch. In 'Daddy', the lovely daughter pines for her daddy. 'Om' acts as matra for searching of the self and also losing of the self. The poem, 'What Is I? ' is a courageous argument celebrating the indivisible and inalienable unison of god and man. 'Kali The Dark Divine' is praised for being the cosmic mother. In, 'In A Godless Universe', the poet turns an atheist. He complains and laments: How lonely am I, / In a godless universe! I would like to suggest to the poet that loneliness may generate both godliness as well as godlessness. It is for us to make our choice. With warm regards Dr. Vijay Vishal

Contemporary Indian English poetry is perhaps a misnomer as because there is nothing as Indian English which exists as a feeder dialect of British English spoken and practised and even it is, it exits as a colonial hang-over and a link language; a library-consulting one. There is nothing as Indian English; a variety of English. There were no poets and poetesses originally as all used to write in imitation and a few which came they, those were perhaps under the influences of the Christian contact. The post-fifties too were not so fruitful in the sense as the versifiers, poetasters, rhymers and taggers started to contribute in and many turned famous as for their first poems and first collections of poems. Today many are calling themselves English poets and poetesses and that too after editing literary journals which but pains us and it is in utter violation of morality and ethics. The smaller editors ask to review their slender books and pressurize for including in Ph.D. theses.

Thank you for the poem. Successful satirical verse avoids conventionalities and is pointed, incisive and imaginative. You may do some observation in the light of this."--Prof.M.K.Naik

" Dear Dr Dubey, Thank you very much for the poetry books. Your enthusiasm for poetry is admirable, but may I suggest that quantity should not come in the way of quality- -which is far more important."--Prof.M.K.Naik

"Thank you for the copy of My Collected Poems. The adjective 'My' is totally unnecessary. I wish you had dropped it from the title. I hope to go through the book when I get some leisure." ---Prof.M.K.Naik
