On January 19, I received an exciting e-mail from Dr. Angelee Deodhar, a haiku friend of mine in India.
Dear Hidenori Hiruta san,
Please do have a look at this site:
With best wishes for 2014,
As you see, Dr. Angelee Deodhar is one of the runners-up in The R.H. Blyth Award 2013.
The site says as follows.
Two runners-up are particularly important, Dr. Angelee Deodhar and Ron Rosenstock.
The former, a well-known haiku poetess from Chandigarh, India, has won this position for her outstanding contribution to the development of world haiku in general and to the spread of haiku literature to the vast audience of India through translation in particular, both represented by her entry of collected translation of haiku books into Hindi.
They are: Classic Haiku, A Master’s Selection, Selected & translated by Yuzuru Miura, Charles E. Tuttle Company, Inc. of Rutland, Vermont & Tokyo, Japan,
Hindi-English edition 2006/ Children’s Haiku From Around the World – A Haiku Primer, Hindi translation & bilingual publication by Dr. Angelee Deodhar, 2007 (originally a JAL Foundation publication)
The Distant Mountain, The Life and Haiku of Kobayashi Issa, by David G. Lanoue, Hindi-English edition by Dr. Angelee Deodhar, 2009/
Indian Haiku, A bilingual anthology of Haiku by 105 Poets from India, compiled & edited by Dr. Angelee Deodhar, 2008/
and a book of Hindi translation of Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, by the same translator. For details, contact the translator:email@example.com
Here are seven haiku from Indian Haiku.
still some light remains
In these hearts
– Dr. Moti Lal Jotwani
the dream peaks
suffer the snowfall
– Suresh Chandra Vatsayan
the snowy peak
is a lonely ascetic
with the moon
– Devnath Singh Anand Gautam
silently the snow falls
the bare trees shiver !
– Manoshi Chatterji (Canada)
sweet candy !
– Anoop Bhargava (USA)
cold winter night –
even her memory
– V.K. Kapoor
in the chill of night
the last diary entry
– Angelee Deodhar
Last of all, I hope that you will get more familiar with Dr. Angelee Deodhar by checking out ‘Haiku by Angelee Deodhar in India’ at the following website of Akita International Haiku Network.
