That about 500 poets from India and overseas have contributed their poetic creations to this multilingual poetry anthology is a matter of pride and pleasure.

This is AMARAVATI POETIC PRISM THREE and within a short span of three years, it has come to be recognized as one of the largest and best poetry anthologies in the literary world that a poet feels highly honored when he/she finds that his/her poem is seen through this prestigious PRISM all over!

Both qualitatively and quantitatively the PRISM 2017 will be deemed as a prestigious possession in a poet’s home library though it costs
INR 1200 / US$ 50 / Euro 45. Layout and design are extraordinarily attractive. Content, theme and form are truly marvelous.
The tendency currently is to skip the messages and other introductory portion of any publication and get into the contents straight! But in this work the messages from HE Nara Chandrababu Naidu, CM AP, HE Mandali Buddhaprasad, Dy. Speaker AP, Her Excellency Bhanu Akila Priya, Dr. Parakala Prabhakar, S/Shri M K Meena, IAS, Dr. D. Vizai Bhaskar, Padma Vibhushan & Gnanpith Awardee Dr. Sitakant Mahapatra, Y.Harishchandra Prasad and Padmaja Iyengar-Paddy throw a fund of information and prove to be a very interesting read.
Multilingual Poets Meets do take place. To come across a multi linguist poet is heartening. In this Prism one can see such a highly reputed MULTI LINGUIST POET in Dr. Kumud Bala Mukherjee of Hyderabad who has contributed poems in TEN LANGUAGES namely Hindi, Bengali, Sanskrit, Bhojpuri, Maithili, Awadhi, Braj Bhasha, Kaithi, Kandu & Dakhini (Deccan) Hindi to Amaravati Poetic Prism 2017.

Poet Dr. Kumud Bala, a Botany & Hindi Lecturer by profession, has been penning poetry for about 4 decades now. Writing has been her passion since childhood and her forte lies in poetry, stories, essays, research papers and more. Her works have been published in several newspapers, magazines and journals. With over 5000 poems to her credit, she participates regularly in Kavi Sammelans organized at the National and International level. With a D. Litt Award from Nagpur Jyotiba Phule University & Research Centre, A Best Poet Award from the Late President Shankar Dayal Sharma, and Saahitya Saagar Samman at the World Book Fair 2017, New Delhi to her credit, she is regularly sought for her work by leading publication and Media houses.
ENVIUS THOUGHTS takes the greatest pleasure in heartily congratulating Dr. Kumud Bala.

It is our proud privilege that Prism Two and Prism Three show a glimpse of our poems. Our contributions for Prism Three are just reproduced here for the read of my esteemed viewers of my Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com, who have already honored me with 1, 15, 000 views and more from 210 countries:

My English poem in page 893 of the PRISM:

FORESTS N. V. Subbaraman

Forests indeed are the wealthiest gifts of Nature
To be kept safe and sound in the world sure for future
Home of animals wild and mild, birds-lovely and smart
For the people all over to enjoy from the start!

Useful to the humans and animals for food and all
Needs of all the living beings throughout quite tall
Creating and readying Rain God to bless the world
With rains copious and plenty since the ages old!

Deforestation the most cruel and heinous act
Indulged by the man quite avaricious in fact!
Society to ensure aforestation efforts
Initiated by the right minded succeed fast!

Great forestation the mankind’s only hope- sure
To make our lives quite healthy and happy – very pure
Here and there all over the globe be taken care of
To achieve the purpose of the creation of the Lord!

Uninhabited lands are in acres million
Efforts be made to make them convenient trillion
Nothing is there in the vast world unachievable
Success is wrought with hard work and mind- practicable!

About this Poem: Urgent need to stop cruel deforestation is emphasized.

MY Tamil Poem on Page 434 of the Prism

சுமையா? சுமைதாங்கியா? என்விசுப்பராமன்
இறைவன்தந்தஇவ்வாழ்வை
இனிதாய்வாழும்வழிஎன்ன?
இறைவாஅதனைக்காட்டிடுவாய்
தலைவாஎம்மைப்பணித்திடுவாய்!.
சுமையாய்வாழ்வதில்அழகுண்டோ?
சுமைதாங்கியாய்வாழ்வதில்அருளுண்டே.!

அமைதிபெருகும்வாழ்வாய்அதனை
அமைந்திடவேநான்வேண்டுகிறேன்!
சுமையாய்இருப்பதில்பயனில்லை.-நிலச்
சுமையாய்வாழ்வதில்பொருளில்லை!
’சுமைதாங்கி’க்குலகில்இணையில்லை.
வாழ்ந்தால்வாழ்வில்சுமைதாங்கி!

இருந்தால்உயர்ந்துஇமயத்தில்!
இல்லாவிட்டால்சுமையில்லை
வாணாள்முழுதும்சுமைதாங்கி
மறைந்துவிட்டால்சுமையில்லை!
இறைவாஎன்னைஇனிதாய்வாழ
அருளும்ஆயுளும்தந்திடுவாய்!

சுமையைத்தாங்கும்சுமைதாங்கி
வலுவாய்இருந்தால்மதிப்பதுவே!
வலுவிழந்தால்பயனிலையே!
வாழ்ந்தால்நானொருசுமைதாங்கி
தாழ்ந்தால்நானும்சுமைதானே!
வாழ்ந்திடுவேன்சுமைதாங்கிஎன
வீழ்ந்திடுவேன்சுமையிறக்கிடவே!

Miss. Nivetha’s English poem on Page 783 of the Prism.i
SUN-THE GOD OF LIGHT AND POWERS. Nivetha

Sun- the God of Light and Power
Sans Thee there is no life on earth
Thee indeed stand at a tall tower
We enjoy you, your grace from birth.

Yet, dreaded season is summer
We know your offshoot is winter.
A hateful summer day started,
Making people themselves get sweated,

Juices and ice creams make stomach fresh,
Sitting under the shades of trees and bushes.
Watching the television in the houses,
In the A/C room moving the computer mouses!

Sitting for long, wasting time,
Writing poems and songs with rhyme,
Children hate you sun, you reduce our fun,
Everyone’s joy is reduced by ton.

Still you are the God of Light and Power
We pray you as we can be sans you never.
Be kind and compassionate, help us
To spend our summer with joy and ease!

About this poem: Here is a poem in praise of the SUN, yet the horror of summer also pointed out.

Poet’s Brief Profile:
S.Nivetha an upcoming young poet aged 18, is studying in the first year of Degree course in Chennai. India. She is well anthologized. She writes prose and verse, a good painter and cartoonist.
