Rousing Cadence edited & compiled by Shamsud Ahmed is one of the most admirable literary book. Shamsud Ahmed has brought to his Anthology a wide experience of literature, sincere sympathies, and a rich sense of humour. Several poems in Rousing Cadence reflect the post-modern quest for moral values. No doubt, Rousing Cadence is a wonderful work of art revealing the poet's innovation and varied experience.
In the anthology, the wide range of Alka Narula’s poems extends the area of sensibility for the joy and advantage of the people. She has “a passion and understanding far beyond her years. ” (Denver Stull). Alka is a poet who portrays emotions connecting it with the threads of nature. A former model, she has also composed lyrics for an upcoming Bollywood movie.
This book is a concerted effort by seven authors across the globe. This is for the first time published authors and renowned bloggers are coming together and sharing their creativity through this book. It brings forth different thinking and perspectives and unique styles of these authors and is expected to appeal to the wider audience.
The book is a testimony to the power of today’s Technology and the reach of Internet. This is because without Internet and Blogging, I would not have been able to connect with the authors across the World, who have done a wonderful job in this book. Maybe this unique book of Poetry – Rousing Cadence would have subsided in an ambitious man’s mind forever.
Now that we have Rousing Cadence out for you, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the authors who believed in me and contributed ¬immensely to this project.
Rousing Cadence delivers equal parts love and mystery, adventure and romance with unparalleled quality. Do not be surprised if you get nostalgic after reading few of the poems. The book is packed with powerful ‘Haikus,’ which have added to the beauty of this book. Rousing Cadence is a series and we will continue to introduce you with new writers across the world.
With this book, I hope that our endeavour to bring poetry to the masses has taken its first small step and I am sure that we would continue moving forward with more authors joining hands and enabling this dream to become a success in the near future. http://www.cyberwit.net/publications/414
