Very encouraging to see the web site. went through a few of those. My personal opinion is that, things like this keeps us reminded of our roots, along with appreciating the richness of the culture we were fortunate to be a part of.
It is really great to know that we still have Bengalees like you. It is so much refreshing to do any of this kind of activities.I am at Houston , TX. Also I do travel very frequently to NJ. So if I can be of any help please let me know. All the very best for Kaurab.
I am really excited to receive your mail.It is very much appreciable that you have started such nice work. I was moved to see the webzine KAURAB. I want to help you in all respect. Please let me know what to do. I can send some poems if you want.I want help you to make this webzine. Best wishes for KAURAB and to you for your effort.

I think the KAURAB website is fantastic!! Hats of to Aryaneel and team. KAURAB has certainly established itself to be a very powerful little mgazine over the years thanks to kamal chakraborty and Barin Ghosal. Now that its on the net opens up a new dimension to its identity. Choice of poems are simply great. Indeed modern bengali poetry is dying , its really nice to see someone giving such an effort to keep it floating on the net. Ironically "parabaas" and "KAURAB" are both from bengali's in north america. Aren't we serving our language better here? ?
Linked Kaurab to my homepage. Hey man - nice site. Just wondering why its called Kaurab and not Pandab ....
I've just been to your site on Kaurab. It's very good. However, I feel you could arrange to make available good English translations of the same so as to reach a wider audience. For instance, I have a lot of non-Bengali friends ( poetry lovers) who do not have access to modern Bengali poetry simply because good translations are scarce. One reason why modern BEngali poetry is in a bit of a moribund condition is, i feel, due to this.
Hats off again for the content. Keep it up !
