Dr . Rishikeshab Raj Regmi is a prominent Nepalese anthropologist.

The Dhimals : Miraculous Migrants of Himal captures the mechanism of an agrarian Nepalese ethnic group caught in the crossfire of tradition and modernization. Dr. Regmi, for the first time, attempts to analyze the society of the Dhimals in a purely anthropological perspective. Describing all around socio- cultural facets of the Dhimals society, Dr. Regmi endeavors to study and determine how certain demographic, ecological and social changes are interacting with the traditional setting in the Jhapa district of Eastern Nepal Terai to alter its basic social structure and cultural traits. Dr. Regmi adopts a systematic development approach and places emphasis on the relevance of economy, occupational variables to the social structure of the Dhimal families.

The book is an authentic account of the little known migrants of Himal who are attempting to adjust the pressures of modernization without letting their traditional value system collapse.

“The well-known Nepalese scholar and anthropologist, Dr. Rishikeshab Raj Regmi has vividly analyzed the entire socio-cultural structure of the fast changing society of Dhimals of the Nepal Terai . His study with an anthropological perspective widely covers the theme he has undertake for his scholarly pursuit and shows how custom and tradition influences behavior, economy, polity and how developing societies are adjusting themselves to the influence of modernization.”

Nirala to launch distinguished American Poet David B. Axelrod’s “All Vows: New & Selected Poems” in August

All Vows: New & Selected Poems

David B. Axelrod

ISBN 978-8182500822 2016 pp 194

Cover and artwork by Jessica Robinson

All Vows: New & Selected Poems is the most thorough selection from most vibrant contemporary American voice, David B. Axelrod. Result of his forty-plus years as a professional poet, the book is  divided almost equally between new work and poems going back to his first book published in 1968. However, the contents are arranged thematically rather than chronologically including poems dealing with family, nature, sports; poems about prejudice and politics; covering a host of topics ranging from the sacred to the profane.

Current Volusia County, Florida, Poet Laureate, Axelrod writes in direct but clever language—more witty than metaphoric. A poem entitled “Sun Worship,” that recounts the warnings of his dermatologist, ends with the lament, “No one can tell me Vitamin D stands for death.”

 

David with gold medal

Celebrated American poet, editor and anthologist, X. J. Kennedy, commenting on a previous Axelrod collection, said, “For all the artfulness of his poems, there is something unliterary about them—that is, they don’t smell of the scholar’s lamp, they seem at times to have turned up in the Lost & Found department of a hotel in Long Island City.”

That easy artfulness is reflected in the comments of Florida’s State Poet Laureate, Peter Meinke: “Many of us have been reading David B. Axelrod’s approachable, wise, and witty poems for decades, so it’s a real treat to have so many of them collected in one book. All Vows deserves a wide and appreciative readership.”

Art facing 1st Poem

All Vows, with topics from backseat driving to xenophobia, autograph collecting to valentines, is not just an enjoyable read, it is teachable text for poetry, and to make that point, those ordering the book for classroom use can request a free copy of Lessons for All Vows: A Student & Teachers Poetry Guide. The book of new and selected poems has ample samples of a variety of styles, sonnets, haikus, tankas, and poems that serve as prompts for those who write poems of their own. William Stafford, whose own poems were renown for their simple artfulness, described Axelrod’s work as, “Poems to cherish and pass around … a prize to keep.”

Quaking Cantos is the creative response of a world-renowned Himalayan poet to the earthquakes that shook Nepal in 2015, killing thousands and leaving more than a million people homeless, vulnerable to the ravages of the harsh Himalayan environment. In the aftermath of the earthquakes, his North and Central American reading tours suspended, Yuyutsu returns to Nepal to bear witness to the devastation the “cosmic commotion” has caused in his own Himalayan home. “These are wonderful, troubling, and moving poems.”

Poem by Yuyutsu SharmaI see my world shaking…
I see my world shaking—
my floor, my bed, my table, my house
my pen stumbling across the soggy span of my page
the stanzas splintered from the kicks of a demon
awake after a sleep of million years…
I see my squares mangled from the litter of a wheezing earth
I see top of our towers crumble and topple onto the dried up riverbeds
I see rickety bridges shudder, waters undulating in the turquoise lakes
on the lofty Himalayan heights, a bowl of milk held in the hands of a fearful grandma.

I see dagger of snow crashing onto the mule paths,
salt routes threading through rocky terrains clogged,
the sheets of snow stained from mammoth avalanches
the pinnacles of snow thrust from the earth’s heart tumble
and disappear in a fraction of a second in God’s colossal mouth…

I see domes of our stupas crack,
five colored flags fluttering before Buddha’s  own eyes bend and break,
oil lamps lit by Yeti’s hollowed skull dim out
in the sunken canyons of the monks’ wailing eyes…

I see famished angels coming out of snow-clad sanctuaries
like the saffron flames fleeing their kingdoms in exile
I see them come out and lean against the mossy fences
on the threshold of great canyons to ponder over the loss of  lives
uttering prayers as the earth cracks open and engulfs
their settlements in front of their own bemused eyes…

I see shrines of our deities shake,
the Lord’s own body cracked into two lifeless boulders,
his mace, his scepter, his lotus,
his conch shell, his brass bowls of nectar,
his splintered quiver full of blunt arrows…

AND WHO WILL BOTHER

by Arturo Mantecón

how tell one from another
another from one
without killing the one
without fating the other
without forking the paths
of the homeward lamb
and the sinful goat
without splintering
the sharp arcs
of the crow
into irrational numbers
it is the mayhem of the word
burning drowning
the soluble body
of the sugar and the salt
the high silk hat
wherein the rabbit disappears
over and over again
to emerge from a sleeve
as a starting bouquet of doves
over and over again
it is to loom the sierpinski carpet
until it lifts up and grazes
the crescent moons
of the inescapable
minarets of baghdad
it is to sweep the dust
of gentile cantors
through those dream
alleys of the souqs
that loll and curl
like ribbons of flesh
like acute angles of smoke
it is to present oneself weeping
and as cock naked
as the humbled jesus
to the cruel gasping laughter
of the stars
